Always Entertaining




 










Smiley little things.

 Sometimes they're crabby.

They're almost always curious!
Reminds me of a Swiss Army Knife!
 Goofy whistlers!
 Such adorable little ducks...
 with attitude!

These are all great (and so entertaining) but that last shot! I might have to leave your page open so I can look at that and smile now and then throughout the day. ;)

They certainly have appeal, like the goofy last shot.

LV said...

What a treat. Loved the three standing in a row showing off their pink beaks and legs. Also, the last is a favorite. Giving you a go away look. Glad you were out today.

The three in the feeder are fun.

The first photo looks like it could have been a painting.

It's amazing that with all the water around that these beggar would still show up. They're first class performers.

Those Whistlers are full of character and would provide me with endless entertainment.

Stephen Hayes said...

I've missed these guys, and particularly like the Swiss Army Knife picture.

messymimi said...

Beautiful and funny! They are great entertainment.

Paula said...

They look so tame. When you open the door and step out, do they fly away?

Ian H said...

They are pretty,but at the same time kinda weird looking.

So many ducks--and so many antics! They really squeezed into the water fountain--lol!

Piękne kaczki :-) W Polsce żyją zupełnie inne :-)

Stewart M said...

And always entertaining to see in a post.

Maybe you dogs consider the cicada shells to be canine pretzels!

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

These adorable little ducks have gotten to be your trademark. I have never seen them anywhere else, either. ❤

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Theresa .. they must be fun to watch - antics all the time. One of your shots - on the bird bath ... they look like pelicans (almost!) .. cheers Hilary

Dicky Bird said...

The duck in the last picture - oh my...his face and expression sums all your captions.

A fine series of whistlers. Their behavior is so animated, 'Excellent shooting.

Oh, I so love them...I would love having them to watch. Do they come running when they see you coming? I half expect them to, by now.

Terry and Linda said...

I agree, they are always entertaining!

Linda

I think you are so lucky to have this cute flock of ducks...(is "flock" correct?..gaggle for geese...) ANYway...they are always sooo cute.

Ron said...

It looks like you have a house full as usual. I guess your pond isn't frozen over?

Inger said...

I wish my dogs would pose for pictures that nicely.

You indeed are guaranteed your daily show!
They are lovely though.

Oh wow your whistlers are super entertaining. I especially loved the one with its bill open (obviously giving its opinion) and then the last one's expression is priceless. Have a great day. Jo

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

I love it when it looks like they don't know what to do with their floppy feet!

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Love, love, love. I wish they would come visit my pond!

Kerry said...

I just love these guys. Some of them must be grand-ducklings of those who have passed through in the past.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

...and to think I almost missed it all!!!

They are that....entertainers. And you make it so fun to view them along with you.

Hannah said...

So many amazing shots of the Whistlers again, Theresa, they look like they are wearing a turtleneck, jacket and black pants. I'm wondering if you can tell them apart.

Miss Val's Creations said...

So cute and goofy!

Robin Lamb said...

T, you're right, what characters!

Beth Edwards, friends call me "E." said...

i love how they stand on the bird bath like that, on the edge. too fun. cuties. ( :

Lea said...

Every time you post more Whistler photos, it makes me want to come out there and bring home a few! But our winters are too cold, and I don't think the cats would be happy with Ducks in the house!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Tex, Wonderful! Our Whistlers have flown off to other areas as it got cold in the local area and the person who put out food has stopped or has moved or is away. So, it may be awhile before I can spot the ducks in my own neighborhood (Maybe in other spots in the big development here). Have a super day tomorrow!

Tony McGurk said...

What a beautiful variety of Duck. I've never seen them before & absolutely love their colours & markings. They look rather amusing crammed into that bird feeder

pattisjarrett said...

Swiss-Army knife--love it! I guess they like togetherness, and each other's company.

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa; Wow, all these entertaining whistles are so adorable♡♡♡ The one with 'attitude' gave me warm smile after dinner, my friend.

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Andrea Ostapovitch said...

What a wonderful collection of photos! They are so ridiculously cute!!!

Brian King said...

LOL! Let's see...how many of us can fit on this little bird feeder?

Ida said...

So much fun seeing the Whistlers again. they are very comical. Loved that last shot, made me laugh.

bon bon said...

Hilary said...

Since neither of us are blogging and/or visiting as often, it's been quite a while since I've seen these little sweeties. And I don't see them much on any other blog, so they're always YOUR babies. So cute.. and I LOVE the Swiss army knife poses. You're a hoot! :)

Kovács Miklós said...

Super series! My favourite is the angry whistler. Great moment!

SweetMarie said...
