It's Raining Ducks

I had a great time after work today to go for a quick trip to the pond with a bit drizzle of rain and viewing some really cool ducks. It's my first discovery of this little pond in the middle of Victoria and I'm sure to be back again. What a beautiful place!

Here are a few of the duck shots I liked, including the above video showing the ducks searching for food in circles. Why do they do this?

Wood Ducks together





We had some great reflections on the water!

  1. That video is hysterical, Jen! LOL. I'm guessing there's rhyme to their reason. How fun. I don't think I've ever seen it done quite like that. You sure did get quite an assortment. Lucky you.

  3. So many different ducks! I don't know why they swim in circles unless it is to confuse their prey! When I was a teenager we moved (my dad had just finished military)back to the family hometown. My parents had found a house to rent and it had a huge pond on the property. You could not sit outside due to the frogs! It was so loud, and I am not kidding, you could not even talk! My dad ordered some baby ducks. Needless to say those frogs vanished real fast, and we had peaceful evenings with just an occasional croak!
