Haibun 2017 | Images Feeding The Ducks Winter 2010/11

Feeding the hungry, ducks, geese, swans, moorhen, coot, and gulls. The image depicts me in the winter of 2010. I hasten to add that to this day I’m still feeding them, and other wild birds. All so, and sadly, much to other peoples disgust, the squirrels, and rats too. And although I have not observed them, wood mice, and probably voles too are visiting the feeding areas, picking up scraps. Of the gulls observed whilst feeding the ducks are, black headed, herring, lesser black backed, and the not so common, common gull, I must add not ever all on the same day, black headed are present everyday often in huge numbers. Health and non rainy days permitting I shall continue feeding, and supporting the local wildlife, and I hope everybody that is able to, does too.


cruel winter
majestic  in it’s beaut

    Thanks for stopping by to like my blog! I live in SW Florida and love the birds as you do, moorhens, great egrets, wood storks, pied billed grebes, anhingas, boat tailed grackles, hawks and ospreys. And those are just the ones I’ve identified around the lake behind our home.
