Every wonder if you took a wrong turn at Albuquerque ?

It appears there are no "fowl" weather stations and the internal clock while accurate can sometimes get ya home a tad too early in the season.

Great photos. Looks like you might need to use some exposure compensation to make the snow a bit more white, though. Still, makes me feel very sad for them!

"We just want to be together".

You have somehow managed to capture sadness in ducks, how the hell do you do that!

A great set of images.

"Not this little black duck!"

Nice pics by the way. I hope the Mallards find somewhere warmer!

Thanks Susan - I'm afraid these are wild and will have to fend for themselves. Suppose to warm up this week, melt some more of the wetlands and then food should be a plenty.

These are some of the early arrivals - others must be still be down south. I wonder if they do rock paper scissors to see who comes back first ?

I guess these ducks just didn't have their ducks in a row before leaving New Mexico.

The ducks will be fine. Plenty of them around here don't bother to migrate and hang out on the ice all winter...
