Splish Splash ... It was bath day at the pond.... I have never seen so many ducks in a short period of time taking spot baths... They flap their wings showering sprays of water, dip their heads repeatedly and repeat... this goes on for a minute or two.
It also seems to create a chain reaction among the other ducks who adopt the ducky see, ducky do attitude!
As a bonus today, I had golden crowned sparrows at my feet (some too close for minimum focus) , a lovely resting scaup, a few Wigeon and a herd of Mallards so large and so laid back that passing vehicles had to honk repeadedly to clear the roadway of avian loungers! What fun!
And here's wishing a very happy birthday to my new friend Glen @ the magic Pond!
Cheers to everyone... Have a happy weekend .................. Terry
