Distancing At The Duck Pond


 This pond at James Gardens never freezes over totally because of a steady stream of water feeding it so the Mallards stay here all winter. They seem to be practicing a bit of social distancing this year.

Wow, that is a lot of ducks. It is good they have a spot that is not frozen. Great photo! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, enjoy your weekend!

I think they are! How neat to see so many and it looks like a cold place to swim but at least it's not completely frozen! Happy weekend!

I knew they were smart birds! They must have a good thick coat of feathers to be swimming in that frigid water.

Lots of ducks in that pond. There must be food nearby or they would leave. Keep warm.

Glad not to be a duck, the frigid water would kill me. :)

I looked carefully to see if other species joined the congregation, but it appears to be a Mallards only club. Wonderful to see such a great winter scene though. I am sure that many passers-by enjoy it immensely.
