I'm not particularly organized and seldom pay attention to detail, being a big-picture type of person--but no one can say I don't have my ducks in a row!
I know I said I'd get photos posted of those tanagers and grosbeaks and buntings (oh, my!), but these Black-bellied Whistling Ducks are just too cute to not post them first. Every evening they line up on the deck above our boat lift, waiting for a neighbor to put out their seed, whistling in their Black-bellied-Whistling-Duck way. I think they are adorable. They seem to be paired up now and may be looking for nesting sites again in neighborhood washingtonian palms.
I meant to put up a duck box for them this year but I just never got that done. I did buy a new screech-owl box, though, and it's occupied, though no sign yet of hatchlings. And this evening a Brown-crested Flycatcher fluttered around a new birdhouse in the backyard. So that's two new avian houses I managed to to put up in time for this spring.
I'll keep reporting on our whistling duck activities as the season goes on and I get myself better organized. That is, when I get my ducks in a row.
