I looked back to see what was happening last year during the month of July and in the process realized that it has been a whole year since I started this blog and that it was visited almost 30,000 times - wow, that's amazing! I have learned to recognize quite a few species of birds, visited new trails and have met many warm and passionate folks - life is grand indeed!
Though, what brings me here today is to share something different.....ducks from different parts of the world which happens to be living in Periwinkle Park - lovingly known as "the duck pond" from years back when I used to take my boys there. I may not be able to travel the world and see those species, so I feel blessed to be able to see them .... right here in my backyard, so to speak.
So, come and join me...
|A female Ruddy Shelduck - from Europe, Asia and North Africa.|
|This Male Ruddy Duck I'm sure you recognize because it lives in North and South America.....I've had the pleasure of seeing it on other occasion during the winter months.|
|And these two here, one of them is seen in North America - an Adult Male Redhead and what I originally thought was a Fulvous Whistling Duck might actually be a Plumed Whistling Duck - a Northern and eastern Australia duck.|
|Some pretty Wood Ducks - these can be seen In North America.|
|A White-faced Whistling Duck from tropical America and Africa...striking!|
|An Australian Shelduck from...you guessed it....Southern Australia.|
|They're baaack! This is my second Iguana sighting this past week.|
|A Bar-headed Goose which breeds in Southern Asia and winters chiefly in wetlands of India.|
|I hope that you've enjoyed visiting the ducks with me, it gives hot July a little spice to life.|
