Whistlers on Wednesday 132

Along with friends (Wood Ducks and Fox Squirrels)

Wood Ducks
 
 
 
 


 
 


These photos are from June 2012 - yup, 3 years ago. Except for the bird bath top breaking a few years back (and being replaced by the Folger's can/plastic platter contraption), not a lot changes under the feeder tree. :)

I wonder how many of the ducks are actually the same ones each year:@)

Mildred said...

They look very content!

Mary Cromer said...

So sweet and wow you have been having these visitors a long time then. Wonder how many would be the originals...I am thinking quite a few and then their young ones added over the years, very nice~

eileeninmd said...

Oh yes, time to take care of my Whistling Duck addiction. They are just so darn cute, who could NOT love them! And the wood ducks are my next favorite duck. Happy Wednesday!

nookworm said...

They are dependable to show up when good vittles are provided. Nice shots.

EG CameraGirl said...

I'm laughing at the shot that looks like one duck has two heads and four feet! ;)

Revrunner said...

I wonder if they're the same ducks and squirrel. :-)

Paula said...

Everyone plays so nice together.

DJan said...

No changes except Bubba is even bigger! :-)

How much wood would a wood duck chuck if a wood duck could chuck wood?

Interesting two-headed duck. Lol. Always enjoy these. :-)

Hi Theresa, Always love your Wednesday Whistlers. Looks like the squirrels want to join in on dinner.
Is it raining there? Pouring here with high winds. Flooding expected in many places. This water by our lakes has no where to go.
Stay safe. Hugs, CM

Your wood ducks are so pretty. They look like painted wooden carvings. Have a great day. Jo

messymimi said...

They know they have a friend in Tex!

ThreeOldKeys said...

I love your mix of peaceful critters. Surely there must be an occasional half-hearted argument.

William Kendall said...

I can't help but notice the stare-down between two of those varmints in one shot.

LV said...

No doubt you live in an area of nature preserve. You share the best. I rarely see ducks, but the squirrels are driving me nuts.

Irma said...

Beautiful pictures of the Whistlers and the Squirrels.
The pictures are pretty clear and sharp, my compliments.
Best regards, Irma

don said...

I'm glad they all get along so well. Your squirrels seem larger than they generally look around here. The Whistler are always interesting.

Ah, I do love your daily visitors!!

Gillian Olson said...

They seem to know the best place to eat, even if the decor does change. Love the picture of the whistler that appears to have two heads.

Marit Sønstebø said...

Happy campers, then and now. :)

Looks like the squirrels were having a face-off!

thepoodleanddogblog said...

Is there any way to know if the same ones keep coming?

Gayle said...

Fast Feathered Friends year to year.

It's so nice that you feed the ducks. For them, the best part of waking up is what's in the Folgers can!

Felicia said...

Wednesday wouldn't be Wednesday without a Whistler or two, or three or ........

I like how in the duck world, different species of ducks seem to get along with one another. A peaceable duck kingdom.

Hi Theresa, So much fun to virtually check in with your Whistlers every Wednesday! So cute and entertaining. Who knew you had a two-headed, four-legged duck in your yard? Ha! Funny picture. Have a fantastic afternoon and evening!

RedPat said...

The old gang is still there!

HighPlainsFlyFisher said...

Ha! Ha! You sound like me...we look outside and most birds & squirrels are the same as they were years ago! Nice that they come keep coming back!

Kovács Miklós said...

Nice shots. Especially the 3rd one. One body with two heads :D
I'm just kidding of course!

A Quiet Corner said...

And judging by their reappearing, I don't think they're going anywhere soon. Those Fox Squirrels are huge, aren't they? Their legs look so long...:)JP

Our photos said...

It is a busy place. Very nice !

bj said...

They are, without a doubt, the sassiest little things, ever. Just adorable and...I want one.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

What's? They Brought in some bit players ... But we know who are the stars of the show! Back then and still today!

Stephen Hayes said...

It would seen that the banquet never ends at your ranch.

Brian King said...

I think the Woodies bring some "class" to the dining table! LOL!

Leovi - La Fotografía Efectista Abstracta said...

Very good and fun, wonderful pictures!

Stephanie Faris said...

My mom told me we aren't supposed to fill our bird feeders in the summer. They get their sustenance from nature in warm months. I told her that we fill the bird feeder for entertainment!

Red said...

You must advertise to get all these visitors. They must be a treat to watch.

Andy Wilson said...

You have some really nice wildlife in your backyard...I envy you...in a good way! :)

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Alas, when ducks and squirrels join forces, the end is very near for us all.

Robin Lamb said...

T, ah yes, you're so good to those funny looking ducks!

Nancy J said...

Ducks, squirrels and familiar bushy tails, they know where the good stuff is!!!

KB Bear said...

Love the two-headed Whistler, and the squirrels that are almost as big as ducks!

Cloudia said...

May it remain thus for a long long time, friend

They are tricky rascals.
The Whistlers are a big happy family!
Have a Wonderful Day, Theresa!
Peace :)

Lynne said...

This year, last year, a few years back . . .
I enjoy the Whistlers whenever . . .
Bushy tails and Wood Ducks are fun too!

Paul said...

That Squirrel in the first picture looks like it's up to no good...

Rita said...

Why can't we all get along so well. :)
