Nature Walks – The Duck Pond

One more before I leave you. I haven’t seen any fish or dolphins or turtles or sharks yet, but I did see a lot of ducks. We leave tomorrow. We will be leaving the snow for the tropics.

Today, the 4th lake/pond was full of ducks and geese. That was the only pond that was busy today. It had a bunch of different ducks and a lot of our Canadian geese.

Some of the ducks and geese were very friendly, trudging through the snow to come right up to talk to me. They loved being photographed too.

Frist he came.

Then she followed.

I also had a couple of friendly Canadians who came up to me just to say hi.

I see my Mallards and Canadians every day, but some of my other ducks were a bit more shy. They were happy just hanging out on the ice or swimming along in the cold water.

I saw a few ducks that haven’t been around for awhile too, like some Common Mergansers.

There were also some Ringnecks.

And one lone Common Goldeneye too.

It was definitely a good duck day out on the pond today. I hope your day is going along just ducky.
