Birds Of A Feather

Birds of a feather do flock together, check out the many different feather colors too. It’s 55F just now with a high of 72 for this afternoon, what a change from the summer temperatures!

  1. I recognize some Muscovy ducks and Muscovy crossbreeds. A neighbor had them when we were kids.

    I like your autumn temperatures better than mid summer! 🙂

    • I am glad that you recognise the birds, Lavinia! The low 90s are coming back this week, I am glad for that. This morning it was 56 degrees outside and 70 in the house. I actually put a light jacket on, not used to “cold” weather after a scorching summer. Sorry for the delayed response.

      • No worries, John. Just glad to see your post. The ducks were a fond and funny memory from childhood. The neighbor’s Muscovy drake would perch on their neighbor’s chimney, watching for people walking by. Sometimes he would swoop down and attack. The duck’s name was “Ben”. Once he fell down the chimney (during summer) and had to be rescued by opening the damper. He fell down into the fireplace, where he was scooped up and placed back outside in his own yard.

    • The road is directly behind me, and I am on the sidewalk so these birds are somewhat desensitised to humans being close but they will move when I get too close. Each of these four man-made lakes seem to have their own flocks!
