The solitary duck looked small against the high waves but on it swam. A duck called Intrepid 😊

I really enjoy watching the ducks and the flock living next to Penticton Creek are quite the characters. They are constantly chatting and interacting, both happily and angrily.
The city keeps them fed and they have lots of sheltering trees and bushes nearby (which they really needed during the unusually cold storm that hit Penticton in December).
Happy Friday; happy weekend.
The ducks are happy to have their creek back.
For a couple of days just before December 25, their little home was completely covered in snow and ice. This is much better.
I wish everyone a happy and healthy 2023!
Have a quacklingly good year. 🙂
Je souhaite à tous un 2023 heureux et en bonne santé !
I enjoy stopping here to watch the ducks or to see if I can spot any fish.
The ducks like to hang out in this protected location along the brook.
No fish to see this time but it’s always a very tranquil spot.
Penticton Creek at night.
I awakened a couple of duckies with my flash, and they quacked sleepily at me. Sorry, ducks!
A waddling visitor stopped by my relaxation spot.
I hope you have a ducky weekend. 🙂
There is a large park and a lake with a nice beach near our home in the Okanagan Valley. There are lots of ducks looking for snacks there and they sometimes follow you around. These three were persistent.
I don’t don’t feed them because there is lots of regular duck food available and it’s much healthier for them. So, they were out of luck on the people food.
They are very sweet though and so cutely waddling around as M and I enjoyed an afternoon on the beach.
Hello from the friendly ducks of Skaha Lake. 🙂
