How good of you to host a soiree so the Ring-Necks could mix and mingle before moving on. You're such a nice hostess.
They really look gorgeous in your pond. Beautiful birds!
Great set of pictures - really like the dull light and the rain drops - adds a painterly feel to the pictures.Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
I think your pond must be on the ducks' Fodor's list of places to visit when your in northeast Texas. :-)
Lovin' the rain drops/splash in pics 5 & 6:@)
Mr. & Mrs. Ringneck, floating side by side;Waiting for neither man, nor tide...What a lovely couple, nice of them to model for you!
Sou sweet ducks...
Not as colorful as the wood duck, but every bit as handsome.
Glad you got the glimpse of the rusty ring to share.Have a 'Ducky' day.
They are so magnificent.
The male is very handsome. Have a terrific Tuesday.Best wishes Molly
Again your pond is the place to be! Cool sighting of the Ring-necked ducks.. Have a happy day!
Those are great photographs of the ringed neck ducks.
Lovely markings on their bills.
They are very pretty! That pond and the RAR hosts some really different birds!
Hi Tex, I like it that you didn't let a little rain stop you from getting some interesting bird photos. Some of those guys were taking a nap! :-)
Prachtige foto,s van deze momenten.
these pics give meaning to the saying 'like water off a ducks back"
the black headed on reminds me of a ape because of the large forehead and his eyes. great shots! I do miss my mallards.
Still not seeing a ring.Checked them on Google...multiple pictures, still not seeing a ring. Should be called "Invisible Ring Neck Duck"Handsome fella though.
Cool! I wonder if any of these re the ring-necked ducks I've been seeing here lately!! You are much closer to them than I was able to get!
Nice looking pair, all right. I like the pattern of rain on the water. Makes me feel right at home. :-)
Very handsome and perfect "duck" weather.
Nice ducks but I really enjoyed seeing the rain drops on the water! ;)
Great shots- I wish my pond were closer to my house so I could really watch the comings and goings.
Very handsome male! They thrive in your pond in the rainy weather :)
It's wonderful to see other species of ducks in your pond. It's raining here too today. Have a lovely day.Hugs,JB
Super these raindrops - nice pictures!Beautiful day Crissi
Amazing close-ups that show their beautiful faces. Very pretty ring-necks. Thank you.
couple of cuties! the raindrops kind of look like little diamonds hitting the water!
Great shots, beautiful ducks.
Love seeing the little rain droplets! Hardly ever see photos like this! Great ones.-Lisa
♫ ...raindrops keep fallin' on my head...♫♪
you sure do get a lot of company!! we are all so lucky you are sharing it with us!!!beautiful ducks!!!
I've not spotted this species yet. One lady who was next to me when we were at the bay long ago, told me there was a ring-necked duck out there on the water...I couldn't tell one from the other because of the distance. NOW, thanks to you, I know what to look for next time.
Morning, what a handsome duck. So lucky to enjoy the pond with so many visitors. Blessings Francine.
They heard that TWG hosts duck dinnner parties, and flew on over.~
Strange how they have the look of visitors to me. Maybe it's because I'm so used to the whistlers. I love the rain on the water.
I love all the visitors we get at this time of year.
lovely photos, handsome ducks
They don't care if it's raining.
Even in the rain they're pretty!
Handsome fellows they are indeed!!
They don't seem to have a worry in the world. At least not at Theresa's place.
Lol, these do not mind getting wet in the rain! Nice photos!
It always amazes me how animals instinctively know their friends from potential enemies. These ducks get along very well. A fine set of pictures too. Well done.
Oh he is most unusual!
Very handsome indeed! I like their markings.
I like a good solid rain too from time to time. Poorman's carwash.
Love the black and white coloring on these ducks. Gorgeous.
All the various duck cousins from this part of the globe must hear about your beautiful pond and delicious buffet!
they are a good looking couple.
Ring-Necked Ducks are very pretty. And Gadwalls, too!Such lovely photos. Rain splashes on the water are beautiful!
I have never seen those kind of ducks before. Interesting ducks. It is nice you took pictures of the rain too, I sort of know what that is about. :)
I wish I got your tv channel!: )I do have a mostly-squirrel channel, but oh, your variety! Love the visiting ducks.
Hi Theresa, I am so happy for you that you get visits from these gorgeous ducks - Gadwalls too! Have a super great day. I especially love your close-up of the Ringneck drake!
I thought they should be ring-billed ducks until the one showed the rust-colored ring around its neck. I've never seen this bird, Theresa. thanks for sharing. Jo
Oh,, if only diversity worded as well with humans!
These ducks resemble our ducks we "Scaup Ducks' call:-) Beautiful pictures of these ducks.
Well, that rain does not bother them. :)
Soon they will be entirely gone from here. I will miss them. Glad you had them stop by!
Great photos ,but it is raining ! Here We have snow today,Nette
I think they are a lovely pair. I like your bird photos.
They sure are pretty ducks. Great pictures.
They occasionally turn up in the UK but I have yet to see one so I'm happy to view your visitors.
Very nice and I love the raindrops on the lake!
Friends in the water ... beautiful images.
...and you must have been standing in the rain to get these shots too...that's what I call dedication :)
I like the markings on his beak!
They are a lovely pair.
Beautiful ducks Tex!Lovely pictures from the pond!Great captures!Dimi...
Great series of photos of those ducks, wish I had rain instead of this strong wind today.
The male and female are dramatically different. They almost look like they are furry.
Girl, you get all the action!
It looks like it was lovely weather for ducks as it was raining.
Great photos, Tex!They really look beautiful in your pond! :)
Oh, I was just going to ask - why the name? thanks!
They are devoted nature creatures, no rain or sleet or even snow will stop them! Precious view!
Its a lovely duck. It's on my list of birds to see. We just don't get too many here in the UK.
Such great looking ducks! With everything they've got going on, you'd think they'd have a more obvious name.
The black and white one is cool!I don't know the model of the matress, it;s one of those space foam kind.
BeAutiful Ducks. We saw our first a couple of years ago. Not in our backyard, needless to say ;)).
Does that look like rain?! YAY!Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.comhttps://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com/sherlock-boomer
They looked good with the rain falling.
Awesome shot with it's head up, showing the ring!...:)JP
Very nice !
Beautiful ducks aren't they?
Poor things - water all over :))Love the black and white one :)Have a fine dayTinna ✐
How nice of them to pay you a visit.
They are all so handsome!
Ducks have such diverse coloring and these are just gorgeous.
T, nice shots! I can't figure out why they didn't call it a ring billed Duck. The ring around it's neck is one of the least noticeable features!
You have such beautiful birds, of all kinds, on your property.
Oh, my, Theresa...they are beautiful!
Ah, the Fred Astaire of the duck world!
Were they quacking in the rain?
They don't let the rain stop them!
They have cute faces!
The rain on the pond looks so refreshing. What a wonderful place for all the birds and animals.
How wet did you get taking these shots?
Sweet couple :)
I love duck couples.
Both the male and female Ring Neck ducks have beautiful markings! The ducks don't look real impressed by the rain...
Very nice, the rainy day gives a special atmosphere!
Dearest Theresa,Love the mix with your other pond residents! What a difference in head if you observe them closely...Hugs,Mariette
Nice to see a rainy day. I love the droplets on the pond. :)
Very nice! Love their bills!
Beautiful ducks! Seems like they don´t mind the weather...
Handsome indeed . . .
Beautiful ducks. You sure got some great shots!CM
Crazy ducks--everytime I try to take a pic they dive under the water. LOLMB
Wow. They are so amazing!
Beautiful! We can see them here during the winter period only.
They're really beautiful.
They seem to love the water.
very beautiful, apart capturing the mood of rain...
nice to see this one. 3 years ago we had ONE of them visiting Sweden and set the whole birding community on fire :) Think of it. Looking for this one bird among thousands of Tufted ducks :)
What a gorgeous duck!
Wow! That is a very striking duck!
They are lovely!!! Gorgeous eyes. :)
