Migratory ducks on the pond are some of my favorite visiting wildlife here. The late Fall through the Winter months will see a number of different types of ducks visit the little farm pond. Last year these ducks happened by: Mallard Ducks, Wood Ducks, Hooded Mergansers, Blue-winged Teal Ducks, and the Ring-necked Ducks. I also recall seeing a Bufflehead but I don’t think I have the picture handy.
These migratory ducks are really nice to see on the pond as they are up-close and personal. Many are diving ducks and eat fish, frogs, and small turtles. A few just eat plants, grains, and fruits. There are lots of different types of foods for the ducks here on this pond. I took these pictures last Winter here at the pond. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
