Waterfowl photos

The 2013 International Waterfowl Breeders Association Newsletter is headlined "Pictures Speak a Thousand Words." What a great array of photos: Brown Chinese Geese, Black Muscovy ducks, Aylesbury ducks, bantam chicks, Rouen drake, Runner ducks, Blue Magpie, young African geese.Lots more great photos on their site.
 This painting is from the March 1930 National Geographic.
 Art Lindgren and his family in Maine offer their ducks water.
 They make good use of it.
 Sometimes you have to make an effort to reach it, but if you're a duck, it's worth it.

These lavender geese are Dave Holderread's in Oregon.

If you enjoy waterfowl, join IWBA and get the wonderful newsletter. Even if you aren't in a position to keep them now, IWBA will keep you informed. Geese may be in your future!
