    Yesterday I went out and spent some time with the flock and took some pictures. Gave them a pool. Then took more pictures. There are also a couple from last weekend. Some ducks didn't give me any nice pictures, so they arent represented. Only continue if you want to see some random pictures of someone else's ducks [​IMG]. Also feel free to follow this up with your own random pictures of your own ducks. No contest, nothing to win, but.... Ducks. Hope you enjoy.[​IMG]

    This was the morning that crows and ravens were mobbing a couple of large hawks. At the same time, little Rowena (see her there in the swim pan?) made her first dive into the pan all by herself.

    Yay crows and ravens! This is not a good place for you hawks! We have Western Ravens (the largest member of the crow family) and Magpies (the prettiest member - I think- of the crow family). The magpies go after the ducks' food if they get too messy, but they can't operate the feeder so they don't get too much. For a couple days we have had a CD hang near where the ducks' food is and so far, no more magpies.

    The crows are our allies. We know they might go for eggs if the opportunity arose, but I must say, these crows have not - I even left an egg out in plain sight for weeks - no one even moved it.

    Ravens are much less common here, and so it felt like a holy moment when I heard their unmistakable voices.

    No magpies here that I've ever seen. Plenty of blue jays, though, speaking of crow family.

    I greet the crows daily and say thank you to them. They and the jays are an important communications network that helps keep the flock safe. When I am walking the ducks around the yard, their calls alert me to get everyone to cover.

    And the Buffs actually listen to the crows better than they listen to me!

    TOOTSIE ROLL!!!!! These pictures had me honestly and completely holding my breath as I looked at them, Tony. I now have Tevye posing all cute on my computer's desktop. It takes up the whole screen. His face is so sweet. Can't say enough about the orange webs. Then I did blow up Kaine's picture in his Kung Fu pose and went nuts.

    Entie and Noir and Noir is an Oreo Cookie girlish gurl burd. I am in love. Then Ettie's plump bod. I need to find out for myself if she's soft and warm. Rhiannon's wing bar. WOW.
    Other than being #1 cute, all the duck bewrds are gorgeous.


    Greta and Pocahontas are in plumpasaurus mode which spells EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

    And Dove coming towards me is just asking for the 'treatment.'

    Then Mystique thinking she can just walk by me and not get the treatment is in for a big surprise.

    Noir emulating Tevye is too much.

    Thank you, Tony, for the awesome photos of SQUEEEEEEEE and for tagging me.

    Really!! You are an amazing duck poppa and a great photographer.
