    Couldn't find a thread for ducks so if it's ok I'll start one.
    A few of my shots of the ducks on the village moat this morning.

    I have probably imaged more ducks than any other wildlife (squirrels are a close second). I was cycling through the woods and came across this duck in a small pond.

    This picture of a Wood Duck was taken in a park in Ottawa.

    Not ducks but I didn't want to start a new thread for what may be a one off.
    There are two of these Canada Geese visit the village moat around this time every year for a week or so. This year for the first time there are three.

  6. I have dozens of duck pix, they are the most prevalent accessible avians around this area. Must get back to the ipad to see what I can post. Thanks for starting the thread, Ian :)

  10. I thought the first was a goose, but apparently its a Muscovy. There were two living wild at the local pond. Not for long, I suspect, they are quite expensive to acquire in Australia, someone will have nabbed them.

    Hopeful duck. Many idiots go and feed them bread. I give them chook food. They are never impressed.

    These little ducks (and they are quite small) live at a different pond, though lately with diminishing water levels, apparently are finding their way to peoples back yard pools.
