So, on Tuesday evenings I often meet a group of women and we walk the waterfront in one direction or another. We start out at the Bird Refuge where I usually have a few minutes to listen to some really amazing songs. Very different from the songs I’m used to hearing birds sing, but it’s great fun.

This week, there was also a pair of ducks.

They proceeded to come over to where I was sitting and check out whether I had anything to share.

Waddle waddle

They passed behind me and thought about things for a minute …

I don't think she's gonna feed us!

… and preened a little.

Maybe a little preening will help

And then they waddled off. That curl in the tail – it totally cracked me up.
