Love theses whistler line ups! Looks like a fine day in Texas!

Brian King said...

The guy on the end in the first photos doesn't have much room to work with if a squabble breaks out. LOL! Perching fools!

messymimi said...

Fences seem to make good perches, as well as obstacles to be overcome!

Of all the photos you post, I like the ones of your pond, horses, and ducks the best. These are beautiful. And great reflection shot in the first one.

Pix Under the Oaks said...

They have sure decided that you are a year round resort for them! Nice to see them and the pond looks like it has some water this year. Hoping spring rains will fill it up. Good Morning!

The Whistlers are so much fun. Seeing them all perched on the fence makes me smile. So tell me again, what is the purpose of the fencing through the pond?

Beatrice Euphemie said...

So serene and beautiful to see your beautiful horses back-lit by the sun with the pretty pond full of life in the foreground! Although I'm still not used to ducks sitting on a fence! Lol! Hope you have a wonderful week! - K

You've got what it takes to keep them coming back...even in the Winter!! I was curious though...how do they fare when it snows down your way or when your pond freezes, if it does?...:)JP

You seem to get more whistlers every year.
