Whistlers on Wednesday 93

Another dose of those rabble-rousing teenage Whistling Ducks that visited in August.



Gobbling up scratch feed.

Sassing their elders.
 

 
 
Feathers like fish scales.
 

 

An adult tries to hold its ground against the young mob.

The juveniles had plenty of attitude.

Greater Roadrunner

As is typical in late summer, our Roadrunner friends begin to hang around the yard, often coming up for water from the bird baths. I still refer to them as "Skinny Chickens". Gobs of photos - just "run" with it. :)

Eyeing the water in the feeder pan.

 
 


 
Always on the look-out.
 
That is colored skin behind his eye, not feathers.


Finally, a drink.




A good neck shake.



   
Finally on the ground, again.

Shake

 
Get ready...

Get set...

GO! Off in a blur.

Roadside Rendezvous Spot

This motorcycle clubhouse along a country highway might not be as radical as Sons of Anarchy, but I bet it holds plenty of stories and secrets.

 It needs a new roof, but I've always liked their mascot/logo.
