Duck watching.


I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

  1. They look like wood ducks, Christine ! – do they have brown heads ? I’ve never seen a group of wood ducks like that – only the one one or two. Lucky youse ! 🙂

    1. Yeah, they are wood ducks, M-R. Most mornings since it got really wet, there have been up to a dozen of them strutting around. They are eating stuff on both sides of the road, but I haven’t seen a squashed one yet. The other day we had three groups of birds out front – galahs, cockatoos and wood ducks. They were all too far apart to get them in the one photo from the lounge window.


  2. My little furbaby would be dragging me all over the place to get to those ducks… He has no self-control. Oh. Did I mention: He’s part Beagle. 🙂


    1. Angela, I don’t think I’ve caught on your furbaby is part Beagle. They are a hunting dog, right? A while ago now, when Vika saw these ducks for the first time, she took off and the knot in the extension decided to unravel. She dashed out on to the side gravel road but the ducks flew away, and she lost interest. She never woke up she was free and I was able to stand on the blue lead! I put about twenty knots in the extension now so it doesn’t unravel again. 😀


      1. You are correct: Beagles are hunting dogs – bred specifically for that purpose (his other ‘part’ is Boxer). Good idea about knotting the extension! I might have to ‘borrow’ the idea. 😀
