The ducks in my header where closely congregated in Fish Creek. This is looking North and upstream. You can see how many ducks are located near the bridge. You can click on the photo to get a closer view. One of the people that guesses the correct number of ducks will get a framed photo of my header. Just put your guess in the comments.
You can see the one unusual color phase of the Mallard Female Duck at the top right.
I went to the downstream side of Fish Creek looking South and some of the ducks flew a little ways.
They settled in fairly quickly and allowed for some photos.
They are very comfortable in the cold water and the water just rolls off their back. Their duck down keeps them warm and they can just sit still in the water.
You can see a lot of neat critters at the above Meme.
