About Me

My photo
Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills. Started this blog to exchange ideas and commentary with friends and others having an interest in joining the discussions. Greatest life accomplishments include: 1.organized my 3rd grade class to check out library books for me to get around librarian's weekly limit--Amazon.com, the Mullins Elementary 3rd Grade Class of 1956 is still waiting for "thank you" notes; 2. volunteered in the Peace Corps, island of St. Kitts, West Indies; 3.taught adults to read, earn their GEDs., and speak English as a second language; 4. bought a border collie puppy for $6, got evicted rather than give him up, and began a life-long love affair with all things "Dog"; 5. joined a physical fitness boot camp in my mid-50s--don't mess with someone who's been doing regulation pushups in wet grass at 5:30 a.m.; 6. walked across Northern England with best friend Sally--over 80 miles from the Irish to North Seas; and 7. travelled to many foreign countries for pleasure and work.

Duck Diners on Beargrass Creek

Driving along Beargrass Creek in Cherokee and Seneca Parks - just in time to catch a mixed group of ducks having their dinner and a bath:

Including this armada-notice that duck butt at the end:

This one fluffing his feathers:

This one showing off beautiful feather markings:

You got some wonderful photos while driving along the creek. I especially like your last photo showing the beautiful feather markings of the duck.

Nice birds - I often wonder how far birders would travel to see mallard if they were rare.

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.
