Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

The picturesque perch in the second photo gets a lot of use, doesn't it? It looks as if the Whistlers have proudly reclaimed it from the white egrets.

Linda Kay said...

Unlike many birds, these male and female look very much alike. Hard to distinguish them.

DJan said...

I wonder if you are getting any rain like so much of the Texas. It's always fun to see those pretty whistlers, contentedly enjoying life at the Run*a*Round. :-)

Sharon Wagner said...

They are so cute and happy looking.

HighPlainsFlyFisher said...

My Wednesday started off on the wrong foot here at work , one of those days , but a quick visit over here for whistler wednesday and I can put a smile back on (at least temporarily)!

eViL pOp TaRt said...

They are beautiful ducks. I hope you are spared the worst of the weather!

troutbirder said...

Do they "whistle" while you work?

Irma said...

Beautiful pictures of the Whistlers.
I noticed that the pictures have become brighter and sharper.
Got a new camera or perhaps a new lens ???

They are so cute in each formation and I like the last pose. I saw the news of the massive flash flooding caused by record rainfall in Oklahoma and Texas. I thought of you and now I relived to see this post which means no damages to you.

They look like they don't have a care in the world.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

The last two pictures they look like they might have hay fever ;>)

Farm Girl said...

Do they leave at all now? Or are they there all year around?

Red said...

This is the quiet before the storm . All the little guys are bound to show up .

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, I actually saw a pair of Whistlers today up in the boonies Northwest of here. The ducks were enjoying what was left of a large puddle in the roadside ditch. It rained several days ago but has been pretty dry here basically. Have a wonderful Thurs. By the way, I really love your Whistlers on Wednesday series!

KB Bear said...

Endless entertainment by the Whistlers!

Lois said...

Even if one has a pretty orange bill, I suppose it can itch (last photo).
Nice display, Theresa!
