Laughing Frequently, Photos of Fauna Ducklings, Auckland NZ 05 January 2017 04 October 2017 Birds By contrast with Tuesday’s blue-footed booby, this trio seems entirely grounded. Alert? Attentive? Anticipatory? Absolutely. Anxious? Absolutely not. Can I be with them?

I have always thought that having to dive for one’s food more than compensated for those stolen moments of leisure.

When they followed Mom Duck, and jumped into the Lagoon from the shore, they bounced. Jim T Isabel Gibson 08 January 2017 at 3:40 pm 3 years ago Jim T – Designed to float is good. Designed not to be able to dunk your head to feed is maybe going too far! Alison 08 January 2017 at 8:35 pm 3 years ago I like ducks!
