We ran across a bunch of Black-bellied Whistling Ducks, (Dendrocygna autumnalis), yesterday at Middle Concho Park. There were probably about twenty-five of them, just sauntering along by the river. They were whistling, too. Really. They seemed happy. I got several shots of them before I went on my way.
Since I didn’t know how to whistle along with them, I decided to let them alone and continue downstream. Or was it upstream. Anyway, I was watching for the pair of Wood Ducks that I had seen a few days ago. They were nowhere to be seen. However, I got another image of a Great Egret to share with you.
More ducks and other water birds are starting to arrive from the north and I saw some Least Sandpipers and also I got this image of a Greater Yellowlegs, (Tringa melanoleuca).
Enjoy the photos and click on any of them to see enlargements.
