Is the last one swinging or did he just find a hammock? Cute duckies. Every one of them.

LE CHEMIN DES GRANDS JARDINS said...

Ces canards aux pattes roses sont de la plus belle espèce. Tu les aimes car tu sais les photographier et nous renseigner au mieux dans leur mode de vie. Les dernières photos nous montrent, à quel point, leurs pattes peuvent être souples. Je me disais que dans une mangeoire, même à ma taille, je n'aurais certainement pas cette grâce. Il est vrai que je suis plus vieux qu'eux. Amitiés.

Stephanie Faris said...

So cool. It looks like he's swinging!

Cranberry Morning said...

Love the one on the swing! They are so cute, in the same way that puffins are cute.

Sandra said...

i was smiling at the stand on one leg pics and got to the swingin pics and actually did laugh out loud.

eileeninmd said...

I just love all your Whistling Duck photos. They are all so darn cute.. I hope they appreciate you feeding them! The last four are just adorable.. Silly duck! Happy Wednesday!

DJan said...

I can never get enough of these cute guys. And to think there was a time I didn't even know about them, before you introduced us! :-)

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

so cute. But someone needs to tell them, trees aren't for ducks. bwa ha ha...that always tickles me

Frank said...

They sure provide some interesting poses ... swinging for lunch .. lol.

William Kendall said...

That one must enjoy swinging while dining.

Linda Kay said...

Your ducks obviously like to eat. But I think that first one is a little big for the bird house!

Judy said...

I love the shots of the duck in the feeder!!

Optimistic Existentialist said...

Whistlers in the winter - how beautiful indeed :-)

bas van Es said...

ze zijn wel dominant aanwezig, andere vogels krijgen weinig ruimte meer van ze denk ik.

Julia said...

What came to mind when I saw the Whistler swinging in the feeder is the song "Swing Swing" by the Rejects.

He sure looks like a swinger whistler.
Hugs,
JB

nookworm said...

Your last 4 shots are hilarious! He's a lead swinger of the group.

messymimi said...

They are such fun to watch!

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

You must be so glad they let you stay on their land!

Pom Pom said...

Silly rascals! They think they are birds! They want bird stuff! So cute!

joeh said...

Molly TheWally said...

The swinging pix made us smile. Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Sylvia K said...

Ah, those Whistlers are a great way to start my day!!!

don said...

These Whistlers prove how funny and goofy they basically are each Wednesday. Their ability to stand on one leg must be explained by the size of their feet.
A fine post and one I look forward to each Wednesday.

Small City Scenes said...

Do they run at you when you go out in the yard? They know you are the feed wagon right!
Whistler Wednesday--I like that.

T what characters! You're going to have to make the hole in that bird house a bit bigger!

Stephen Hayes said...

When is the funeral for the Whistler lost yesterday to a predator. And what to wear? My wife frowns on it when I wear feathers outside the house.

I adore those last three, using the bird feeder as a swing!

Dearest Theresa; How SWEET, I always love to see all these photographs expressing your LOVE to your Whistlers♡♡♡ Winter Whistlers DO have various faces (cute and goofy). Well, my favorites are the ones you chose for the first three which they stand with one leg looking far away pondering something. Makes me feel they DO have emotions:-)

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*
