Just Ducky

Trust me, they're ducks!!
The fog is just now lifting at 11:00 A.M., to reveal the flock of ducks that has been building and chilling off our shoreline. It all started with a few. Then there were a dozen. Now, there are about double that. Not just a foggy phenomenon, as this has been going on for about a month. For some reason, they like "our" waters, 'cause they haven't budged much. And even though it's already mid November, I'm assuming they are staging in anticipation of a soon-to-be migration, as per (link) this article. Live and learn…

They're fun to watch, often going under water to forage for food. It seems like forever, before they pop up many feet from where they began. 

Feeding ducks appears to be part of our family's genetic make-up. Here's Bri taking my childhood spot on Unqua Lake, way back in the day. Lakeside living speaks for itself; wouldn't you agree?
