Quality Time with Ducks

A  L  O  H  A !
My Life as a Duck by Charlie Winston on Grooveshark
Walking 
through Waikiki's
early morning foliage,
I became aware
that I wasn't alone -
a pair of wild ducks!







 We checked each other out -









 Even made eye contact -










They resumed their routine











 Busy Digging Duck

































 Give me a gauzy, feminine effect








 I'm BOLD!








 But thoughtful and reflective too















She seems to be wishing us a sweet day!



For ALL of us
Ducky dear!




Animals 
teach us 
that there are many 
different ways 
to live and 
to love.

Loverly duckies! Look like the Hawaiian state bird, the protected nene, but I hadn't seen a blue patch on them. A diffo duck? Maybe they're lookin' for their own TV show. Glad they're happy on Waikiki.

Those are pretty ducks!

Whenever the Muscovy ducks down by Lake Siri see me, they come running (in a waddling fashion) for their bread pieces.

Wild, yet so comfortable with you! Loved the pics.
A Merry X'mas to you, Claudia!

These are not Nene Geese, but working class ducks that seem to be coming back to Waikiki. I've seen them about in recent years - but don't remember them before.

Back in the day, Waikiki was a marshy place of beach homes, rice paddies, duck farms, and marshes.

Thanks Dears!!!
