Uhmmmm lol,,,if I may clarify for you....WE tried to get him and Yin,and Yang a home for the winter,but they would have none of it,,so,,We [Bob and I] fed these guys all Fall,and Winter through out the freezing,unbelievable crappy winter weather we had,,,even negotiating the ice across to a little island,so they would be able to get food easier,instead of trying to run/walk with difficulty across the frozen pond,,also,they would be closer to the open water where it was warmer,and safer....We are so happy these ducks made it through all that! Now,,they just have to manage 'Granny' making sure she has enough bread to pick up her end of supplying the Ellis Duck Cafe,,,lol! This is a really neat photo Max or our 'little man' to the ice...They are actually eating too much,in my opinion [Yin/Yang] Duckie expends so much energy in running,that he seems thinner,so I guess he needs the extra goodies! Thanks for picking up the slack,,tee hee!..I wonder when he is going to molt those primary feathers,,they sure look ragged and tattered! :))

Well he looks like he made it through the winter. And you didn't even have to take him home with you.

About Nikongranny


Old, retired with lots of time on my hands and a Nikon. Lucky for me, there is a park just north of town that provides me with migrating birds and sunsets. Since joining this site, I have a new appreciation for this scenic world we live in. I especially love the comments from so many great people on here.
