Whistlers on Wednesday 124

A few mob scenes from March.
 
 Staying out of the middle of it.


 A hungry pack on the move.

 Squabbles are a given.

I liked the side-step.

Nancy's Notes said...

What a mob and a delightful one, indeed!

Booth 555 said...

Great shots. I love the one that shows it getting ready to land. It's in the upper top of one photo, and it's facing us.

ThreeOldKeys said...

Looks like they're deciding where to have lunch. It's probably not easy for 25+ ducks to agree.

eViL pOp TaRt said...

Dancing ducks, or ducks crowding in at Starbuck's for their morning fix?

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, Such nice winged friends you do keep. Your series is fantastic and such fun to read. I especially like your humorous captions! Have an outstanding day!

Debbie said...

crazy walkers....reminds me of the streets of new york city ;)

nookworm said...

Funny funny FUNNY!

William Kendall said...

Quite a gang of Whistlers. I really like the solo shot. That whistler's looking quite stoic.

thewovenspoke said...

Wonderful series of photos :)

don said...

They look big and full grown, but still have a quirky look that makes them look cute and an ongoing show of attitude. I look forward to Wednesdays for your Whistler post! :-)

Grandma C said...

The Folgers coffee can finally gave way?

Gwen said...

so adorable!

Nancy Chan said...

Beautiful whistlers learning new steps ...the side step? So cute.

thepoodleanddogblog said...

That would be too intimidating for me to film it.You are very brave.

Gillian Olson said...

I too like the side step, maybe dancing lessons happening in that last one. At cute little mob, but looks like they have trampled your gras.

Chandra Eswaran said...

Very cute!
Where is the keg? :)

Have a Beautiful Day, Theresa!
Happy Earth Day & Peace :)

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Gosh that is a mob!

Halcyon said...

Looks like you drew quite the crowd today!

Revrunner said...

I'd be watching my step with that crowd. :-)

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Always a good time seeing the Whistlers.

Ms. A said...

It's a wonder you have any grass at all, around where they congregate. The grass around our feeders takes a beating and it's mostly from doves and pigeons.

carolann said...

Whistle day! Ya!

You must know that song well.


Whistle As You Work but for you .

Whistle as you photograph.

Karen S. said...

The gangs all here! WooHoo, we are Whistling Dixie!

Cute! Looks like there's an invasion at your place.

Czereśnia A said...

Wonderfull photos...

Nancy J said...

Strutting proudly down the garden path. they look quite regal, and what a gathering.

Mich said...

They're so pretty! The Canadian geese do a pretty good job of running all the other birds out of town here, so all we get are the occasional mallards.

eileeninmd said...

Cool, if I was ever mixed in with a mob... I hope it is with a mob of Whistling ducks..They are so darn cute! Awesome shots. Happy Wednesday!

This is just adorable. I'm another one over here cracking up about the side step! Also, I don't blame you for "staying out of the middle of it" - whatever it was! LOL

So many Whisters!!! I hope that they never get mad at you or you'll have a riot on your hands!

Susan said...

Hi T, just a quick pop in to see the cute Whistlers. Seems there's quite a discussion going on between them in the second last photo especially. They're lovely and always amusing. Cheers now :D)

Cheryl @ TFD said...

The one in the middle in several of the pics looks like the one calling the moves!

Great shots of the whistlers! I don't think I'd like to get in the way of that mob (unless I had some good food to offer as an appeasement).

Rita said...

LOL! The side-stepper appears to be dancing!! :)

Midmarsh John said...

They look very elegant when in large groups.

The Whistlers are always so much fun to see!
I like seeing the sassy squabbles too . . .
