Plenty of Ducks!

Black-bellied Whistlers

Black-bellied Whistlers

Whistlers (Black-bellied Whistling Ducks), Mallards, Hooded Mergansers, Florida Mottled Ducks, and yes, a lone Lesser Scaup duck, were all spotted this past week here in ponds and lakes in my area.  I am seeing more and more small flocks of migrating ducks around lately.

I have been told that more will be arriving including my very favorite, the Buffleheads!  I sure will be happy if I get to see some of those around the area’s small lakes and ponds!  I usually go out bird watching with the camera at about dusk as that is when I have more free time.  I hope you enjoy seeing these beautiful ducks as much as I do.   Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger image.  Enjoy!
