Nature Walks – Ducks of the Day

Our Colorado weather is being true to form, meaning it is being completely unpredictable, once again. Yesterday I was in shorts. It was a beautiful, sunny day with the temperature in the low 70’s (F). Today, the skies are gray and over cast and we are expecting more snow again tonight. Go figure.

I took advantage of our beautiful warm weather and went walk-about around our lakes, as I do as much as possible. The ducks were out too. We had so many ducks and geese out, all of whom were enjoying the beautiful day as well.

Of course our mallards were out,

as were our Canadians,

along with their close cousins, the Cacklings. There was one lone Wood Duck swimming along with the Cacklings too. Look closely, and you will see him.

I zoomed in on him and made him stand out so you can see his beautiful colors. I didn’t see him at first either. It was only after I was editing my pictures that I noticed him.

We also had some Hooded Mergansers out and about,

as well as some Common and Barrow Goldeneyes.

And last but definitely not least, we had some buffleheads out too.

It was fun seeing so many different ducks out and all together. I LOVE my lakes. You just never know what you are going to see or who you are going to meet. Everyday is a gift.
