2016-08-17: While walking to the barn to photograph the inside of the hornet nest, I noticed some "ducky shapes" in the creek. Of course I had to come back for the telephoto lens. It turns out the two "duck shapes" I saw were actually two of 15 female common mergansers. Here are 7 of those 14 in one shot.

Pelicans! San Diego, California.

Somehow, for the first time when I saw him, this is what came in my mind, hence the name. What do you think?
Have a a great mid-week, dear friend. A Wednesday good night from California. Wish you a dreamy night or a bright day.

Water Bird Wednesday

The Egyptian Goose is not really a goose, but is actually a Shelduck. It is a cross between a goose and a duck.  It has many duck-like characteristics, but it also has some external goose-like traits.These old-world shelducks were domesticated by the ancient Egyptians, who considered them to be sacred.  The Romans and the Greeks also kept Egyptian Geese in domestic flocks.
They eat mostly seeds, leaves, grass, and herbs, but will also eat insects, worms, and small animals.
