Wild Bird Wednesday - Duck, Duck, Goose!

It's Wednesday (well not really since I'm posting this on Tuesday) but you get the picture as I'm posting for Wild Bird Wednesday  and by the time you see this it will most likely be Wednesday.

Be sure to pop over to Stewart's blog, Paying Ready Attention to check out the other wild bird entries.



Coleen and I periodically take trips up to Pioneer Park here in town.  There is a lovely Aviary there filled with all kinds of ducks & other birds.  Mind you these shots were taken through the links of a chain link fence but I think they turned out just find.

I don't have a clue what kind of ducks these are because I forgot to look at the ID tags on the Aviary.  Anyway I like this one because it has that really cool blue beak.

This one has lots of really cool colors and don't you love the "ruffled" look of it's feathers.

Finally we spotted something really adorable...

Duck, Duck.......

GOOSE! - Or in this case a Gosling.

Actually there were 3 little Goslings...aren't they adorable?
