Meanwhile.. back at the pond...

 

(I spotted the duck! It's the first time the duck has been around in a long time)

The baby Moorhens have been, more of less, left on their own now..

The Egret is here daily... (I wonder if Egrets blink? heh)

 

 

(Woody is so interesting to watch!  .. and he doesn't care much who's around! *Egret*)

And then the next day brought a big surprise to me!...

Woody has a girlfriend!!

look how nonchalant he is ...pretending not to notice that she's getting all pretty for him!

Isn't that just like a man?! lol

The storks are hilarious! Yep, just like a bloke... ;-p

And I love the duck in the first pic. We forget what lovely plummage these everyday birds have. Lovely colouring.

I'm just curious...how close can you actually get to any of these birds? Are they comfortable with people?

And I agree with Cath...that duck is just gorgeous!

you can get maybe 10 or 12 feet from them.. but nearly every photo i've taken has been from inside my apartment using the zoom on my camera... some will come a little closer for bread if you toss it out.. there's one moodhen and she will come right up and take the bread from your hand. But the stork and Herons won't come close
