Beyond the BackyardCircle B Bar Reserve

Flight School

The Black-Bellied Whistling Ducks are pretty active these days at the Circle B Bar Reserve.  When I visited there last weekend, there were so many ducks circling overhead making their happy calls.  I noticed a bunch of juveniles, and I think they were having a little bit of a Flight School as they circled around and around.  These silly ducks are some of my favorite birds.  I love how the light catches their feathers and makes them shine, like in this juxtaposition image.  There’s something cool to the opposite symmetry of the wings of this pair.
