Whistlers on Wednesday 128

Meal sharing.

I like the crow in almost silhouette.
A little posing, preening and mugging for the camera.


Squirrel sneaking up in the background.



And a bit of resting.


So darn cute!

I just remembered it was Wed and wanted to see what the gang was doing...I see they are being their usual beautiful selves.

Hope you survived the storms and that they did not come to close to you.

Looks like the last photo is the popular one. I too like it.

Birdman said...

don said...

I think these whistlers know when it picture taking time and they assume their poses. They do have a wonderful personality that comes through your pictures of them.

Small City Scenes said...

Mugging---perfect word for these guys

Phil Slade said...

I can't help thinking your Whistlers have more than enough food to share. You're so generous Theresa.

Sometimes I think about the money it takes to feed all these guys. Then I think about the money you save in fertilizer!

Anita Davis said...

Hi Theresa, Extra extra cute! Love the bubba sneaking into the frame. Have an excellent Thurs. tomorrow!

Lovely ducks nearly smile to you when you take a photo :)

eileeninmd said...

I always enjoy your Whistling Duck Wednesday.. They are all beautiful shots, just adorable.

Lynn said...

Oh yea, it's a lot of work being a duck... or at least a cute one:@)

Red said...

Your feeding regime where you spill lots of mixed bird seed around suits many birds.

Mama Zen said...

These are adorable!

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

"So darn cute" is right! I like the 7th image, with the puffy duck staring right at the camera.

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

There is something so innocent about them, that makes them so endearing--Added to just being cute!!

Paul said...

Looks to me like the Run*A*Round Ranch has definitely attained "preferred accommodation status" amongst the migrating Whistler crowd! :)

Marie C said...

They have such pretty colors! Love those birdbath shots!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Love the bright red beaks on these sucks! It looks sunny where you are--we are having continuous rain along the Front Range of Colorado!
