the balance act in the first two blows my mind, he has about 2/3 of his body hanging in space. and i love the one of the wings up with two on the edge.

Bob Bushell said...

Pure genius, I love them.

Marit Sønstebø said...

The whistlers are surprisingly able to cling to the feeders or bird bath. They are still very cute in my opinion.
A fine post.

Hannah said...

I was looking forward to more of your whistling duck photos. They don't seem to have the right feet for sitting on a feeder, they look so unbalanced that they could fall off at any moment, so cute! It must be hard to get any work done with so many bird antics to watch, Theresa.

Lynne said...

You delivered my dear . . .
Bringing a smile for my heart . . .
Looks like they are back . . .

Those ducks would provide me with a constant source of amusement. How come that dish and pole don't fall over? You must have them tied down pretty solidly!
