Fowl weather

Apparently our waterfowl are getting quite randy...

 I caught these Hooded Mergansers hooking up on a very cold creek

 Mallard couple...practicing synchronized landings
 Mallards and several Hoodie couples...swimming away from the intrusive photographer
 More Mallards, and surprise Hoodies on Massie Creek!
 Mallards in the sun on the Mad River
 Oh! Male Canvas-back Duck wintering on the Mad
 Ignoring the many Mallards
 Oh, Canada...I found your geese...
 They love the Mad, whose swift waters never fully freeze over
 Even the common Horned Larks seem to be in the mood...

 Not so much the wild turkeys...
 They're too busy picking over last year's cornfields

Hoodies are my favorites but I really do love them all, including the geese from Canada ;) Great post, Michael.

Nice looking ducks and turkeys but it looked cold to me.
