Black-bellied Tree Duck

Hello, everyone.

A couple of days ago the camera was available when the local duck came by to check things out. (Well, there were more but only this guy posed for me.) Sometimes as many as six stand on the rooftop and look at the world.

In the spring, there is often a pair nesting in the next-door neighbor's palm tree. The babies bounce out of the tree-hole nest and follow their mother across our yard and two more to get to the drainage ditch for their first swim.

Tomorrow there should be a post about Laguna Atascosa.
