I truly think that there is more beauty in imperfection than perfection, for it is the imperfect things that truly make us beautiful. --me

Duck, Duck, Duck, Goose?





Well everyone, I have been looking and have not been able to find out exactly what kind of ducks these are. At least I think they are ducks, in my research I landed on a goose (I don't remember which one at the moment) that it might possibly be. So if someone knows and would tell me I would appreciate it. I have never seen birds like these up close before. I usually see the normal mallards and canadian geese in this spot, oh and of course I can't forget the seagulls. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

They look more duck than goose to me. Unless there is a short of short necked goose.

Great shots though.

They look duck-like to me, but I don't really know for sure what they are! Nevertheless they are simply beautiful! Great shots!

Christy: I see a lot of Mallards and Canadian Geese but there are always other birds and bugs to capture.

Louise said...

Well. I'm clueless. At first I thouhgt duck, but it sort of looks gooselike to me. Do geese swim all the time? There is a mallard-type duck next to them, right? Better head to someplace more knowledgeable!

I think there are 2 white ducks and a black one... reverse oreo anyone?

Salty said...

Hi Christy,
Your white ducks appear to be of the domestic pekin breed. The other duck most likely is a mallard crossbreed.

Willard said...

You have me stumped on that one, but they are excellent photos!

Shellmo said...

Beautiful shots! I checked my Birds of Michigan field guide and the closest I could guess is that it's a snow goose w/ its juvenile. But I'm not 100% sure...!

Sanni said...

*LOL* @ B13 =)
Great shots, but I can't help you here - sorry. I got no idea.

Happy Sunday anyway.

Rhea said...

Love your ducks and geese! Very cool but I can't help you out on the kinds...I have no idea.

Thanks for visiting me!

Misty Dawn said...

hehehe - I'm giggling at b13's comment

I would guess that they are ducks. Whatever they are, they are just perfect for Camera-Critters!!!

Looks like a fun time on a hot (at least it's hot in my neck of the woods) day!

Gretchen said...

Really nice shots!

AppleDebbie said...

I agree with Salty... I think the white ducks are pekin ducks. Your photos are wonderful!

ratmammy said...

no matter type of bird they are, these photos are cute!

Pietro said...

These animals are so cheerful! Wonderful images!

Beautiful ducks. Love the look of the pic, it's so clear...like you can just reach out and touch one of the ducks.

They look like ducks but I'm not sure what breed they are. They are lovely.
