A Cold Duck Day

Mallard Ducks

Mallard Ducks

Mallard Ducks were paddling around the pond yesterday afternoon when I took these pictures.  It was 24 degrees F. with a bit of snow on the ground.  I did not stay outdoors very long.  I watched the small flock of ducks paddle back and forth, in and out of the reeds along the opposite shore.  The ducks mostly  stay on the other side of the pond among the cows.   I took these pictures on Feb. 1, 2013 from my yard and from my living room window.  It is snowing again this morning here in Cumberland County, TN and we may have about 2-3″ of new snow total today if this keeps up.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. Snowing like crazy here –and SO pretty… We’re finally getting some WINTER…. I love it… Many people don’t –but I do!!!!!

    Great photos… Stay warm today.

    • Hi Betsy, Had about 2″ of snow today here and about 3″ last night. Not too much left – maybe an inch and spotty at that this evening. We had lots of Canada Geese here today at the pond. Maybe they felt safer in a smaller body of water than over at the lake. Have a wonderful day tomorrow!

    a cold duck day – and not the alcoholic drink kind. 🙂

  3. It is neat to have this pond with ducks so close to your home. I guess the ducks do not mind the cold and snow. Wishing you a happy weekend!

  4. So you have mallards all year long, too!
