The Lesser Scaup Ducks, Bufflehead Ducks, and Mallard Ducks were all happily paddling in mass along the shoreline near my dock. Our 101 acre private community lake where I live had been frozen for the past week and just thawed out during the evening of 12/30/10. I took these pictures yesterday from my living room window, my back deck and from a window in my basement. I have never seen so many ducks in the same place at the same time here. There must have been about two hundred ducks in all. We also had the American Coots and the Canada Geese here. This is the first of two posts with these pictures of the Ducks. I’ll post the other here soon.
I will keep this post short and very sweet. Happy New Year to all! Please click on the thumbnail version to see the larger picture!
