Updates and Alaska Trip
I've been very busy lately,  but I did take some bird pictures. I haven't been keeping a whole lot of track of the ducks at the lake. Several have gone missing. For example, I haven't seen the puffy-headed pekin and his girlfriend for a while. Also, we've h...

Random Rambles and Pictures
I just thought that, since I have't posted in a while, that I would post a few random updates. I saw Pepper the duck a couple of weeks ago at Lake Murray. He'll be 7 this year. Several ring-necked ducks are also at Lake Murray right now. Remember Snowie and...

Final Duckling Report
I'm sorry that I haven't been updating lately as I've been so busy that personal projects have been put aside. I have a ton of photos which haven't been processed yet, including several bird pictures from my trip to a bird festival in Tucson.  In the meanti...

**
Well, I have some very bad news about some of the lake favorites. The bad news is that the coyotes have been extremely active in the area around the fishing pier and have killed several domestic birds and perhaps a wild one or hybrid. But, before I give you...

Baby Season 2017
Duckling season seems to be peaking now. What's been nice is that a lot of the ducklings are surviving a lot longer than they used to. The blue herons have all fledged from their nests and I haven't seen the black-crowned herons all season. The gulls are be...

Ah, Spring is for Ducklings
Though I haven't been at Lake Murray the last few days, when I last saw them, these three ducklings were still plugging along. Each day their mama was taking them on longer and longer distances, even going beyond the fence line. They were constantly moving....

More and More Ducklings at Lake Murray
Right now, there are so many ducklings being hatched that they are pretty much everywhere. The seven from last week were down to three yesterday. These had made it to ten days old, which is rare in this spot. I doubt I will see them again after these photos...

A New Contender for First Duckling
I went back to Lake Murray today and found this cute little guy who may actually be older than the ducklings I saw yesterday. I suspect all his siblings were eaten by predators. He's the only one I saw for that one particular female. In the meantime, these ...

First Ducklings of 2017!
The first ducklings I've seen for this year at Lake Murray have just arrived. There's a chance that others may have hatched earlier, but are hidden in areas away from people. So far, no signs of goslings and only a couple pairs appear to be nesting so far. ...
