The Show's Always Going On

 The ducks seem to pay no notice to the icy water and the thick ice, they found a great place to munch.

I can watch ducks for ages - they are such busy, sociable little creatures. Each spring we wait for the arrival of the wild duck couples who come to keep company with our domestic flock for a couple of weeks.

Those ducks make me feel cold. The water has to be extremely cold.They sure don't seem to mind.

I love ducks! And Canadian Geese, if I see a V of them, I just have to pull over and watch. :) Kit

Oh baby, it looks so cold out there. The little water fowl don't seem to mind a bit, do they Diane. Lovely photos!!! and a great capture of the flicker.

The RH is the March issue which should be on the newstand soon. I haven't seen it yet, but hope to get to town next week to get a copy.

Great pictures, Diane. Amazing how the ducks and water birds don't seem to mind that horribly cold water...

The squirrels can jump most anywhere... And I love your Northern Flicker.

Hugs,
Betsy

It's amazing how we find it so cold and all the little creatures of the world manage to adapt to their environment. Boy I bet that water is cold. Hope you are staying warm and cozy. Tammy
