When I was in the Okanagan Valley earlier this month, the ducks were very active after what had been for them a cold winter. This duck pair had separated themselves from the larger group and were probably looking for a good nesting spot.
Most of the other ducks congregated in noisy communal happiness, enjoying the warmer weather and greater abundance of food.

Things were hopping around the lake here yesterday Lynette. Ducks, coots, grebes, etc. have all come back and it is just one giant nursery in waiting. Happy Thursday. Allan
I love ducks,
They’re always such fun to watch, aren’t they?
Thank you, Allan. That’s such fun. Soon you will be able to watch all the little ones growing up!
So good to see the birds come back.
Agreed, Anneli. They’re such a life-affirming force.
I just love ducks; they’re so entertaining to watch.
Yes, they sure are. This group is part of a larger flock that lives year-round near a creek that flows through one of the city’s parks. Everyone makes a fuss of them and the city feeds them when it’s cold out. They are a very beloved and pampered duck flock!
Soon the group will get even larger when the babies appear!
I hope I get to see some of the little ones when I go back to Penticton at the end of this month. Cheers.
