White-faced Whistling Duck (Dendrocygna viduata)

I was cooooooooold today, freezing cold, and windy. It was so cold, these poor birds that come from sub-Saharan Africa and much of South America were not very pleased.

  2. Poor beautiful duck. It's a gorgeous one. Fantastic photographie Bob. I have a question. You know I have a peanutyar in my garden. I was told to take it away as soon the young birds are born. Because it's dangerous to the youngones because of the fet what is in it. Is it?
    Have a wonderful weekend BOb.

  8. It always seems the birds and geese and ducks simply don't mind the cold. Just continue about their business hunting for food. Great pics!
