Duck, Duck, Goose

I think this merganser is looking for a goose.
This Hooded Merganser is too cool for school.
This Goldeneye is feeling out of place.

Thanks to Our Eyes Open for hosting the Bird Weekly challenge and indulging my obsession. This week’s prompt is ducks and geese. The featured mallard found himself ditched.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. I love your selection this week! The male Hooded Merganser is always spectacular. I have several photos but couldn’t find them. I admit, I didn’t try very hard. I’ve only seen a Golden Eye a couple of times but never a good photo. Thank you for sharing. 😊

      1. You know…this challenge isn’t necessarily about great photos, it’s about seeing birds you’ve seen & now share so the rest of us can enjoy them too. I have so many places I want to go now. 🥰

      2. It took me watching “The Big Year” with Steve Martin, Jack Black & Owen Wilson to get into heavy birding. I have been photographing birds since 2003. Finding new species gets me super fired up. 🙂🙃🙂🙃😁
