This is a pastel duck (is that it's real name )or a reference to his color?)  He reminds me of a dove.  I guess it's his pinkish gray coloring.

The pastel duck from your photo is Call Duck, Vicky. Since their introduction to the United States, many Call Duck varieties have evolved as the result of color mutations generated by purposeful cross breeding, and pastel color is one of them.
Pastel and also apricot Call Ducks are one of the most gorgeous little ducks, they have a lovely nature and are so friendly.

Hi Monika and Vicky,

Vicky, I love rubber duckies...almost as much as real ones.  They are so cute!  The pastel duck is exactly the color of a mourning dove.  It's so pretty.  It looks like a magician changed a dove into a duck!

Monika, I love all the chickens.  They are every color of the rainbow...golds, rusts, greens, reds, blues...and so many patterns.  I so wish I could see a real one.  Vicky, you are so lucky to have them near you.

But the very best vid is the one of a fall morning with chickens, geese and ducks.  I could watch it all day.  Fall is my favorite season with all the beautiful leaf colors...and all my favorite outdoor birds in a lovely place.

That would be a good trick, Lee...changing a dove into a duck  lol

Monika I love all your vids!  The video of Ohio in the fall is gorgeous and I love the variety of a animals.   The Golden Brahma vid is my fav....he is so handsome with his varied colors and his feet with the tufts are so cool.   Boy, the rooster in the last vid must be in 7th heaven surrounded by all those hens!      I love their clucking noises.

This collection doesn’t need any special introduction, it’s all about the cuteness of these ducklings. What is cuter than a group of adorable baby ducklings?

The Forty Little Ducklings Who Lived Up At The Farm
A poem by
Laura E. Richards

The forty little ducklings who lived up at the farm,
They said unto each other, "oh! the day is _very_ warm!"
They said unto each other, "oh! the river's _very_ cool!
The duck who did not seek it now would surely be a fool!"

The forty little ducklings they started down the road,
And waddle, waddle, waddle, was the gait at which they goed,
The same it is not grammar, you may change it if you choose!
But one cannot stop for trifles when inspired by the Muse.

They waddled and they waddled, and they waddled on and on,
Till one remarked, "oh! deary me, where _is_ the river gone?
We asked the Ancient Gander, and he said 'twas very near,
He must have been deceiving us, or else himself, I fear."

They waddled and they waddled, till no further they could go,
Then down upon a mossy bank they sat them in a row.
They took their little handkerchiefs and wept a little weep,
And then they put away their heads, and then they went to sleep.

There came along a farmer, with a basket on his arm,
And all those little ducklings he took back to the farm,
He put them in their little beds and wished them sweet repose,
And fastened mustard plasters on their little webby toes.

Next day those little ducklings were very, very ill,
Their mother sent for Dr. Quack, who gave them each a pill,
But soon as they recovered, the first thing that they did
Was to peck the Ancient Gander, till he ran away and hid.

Hi Monika and Vicky,

I've got computer problems.  I haven't been able to watch the vids for a few days because of it.  Should be fixed tonight!  Back tomorrow to watch and post!

Monika I love the vids and the poem is adorable!   The goslings look sooo soft and fuzzy and how sweet that the rabbit was helping out the mother goose.   My gosh how did she carry that many babies????

Lee, I'm sorry about your computer problems.  I have a brand new laptop and I'm about sick of it.   The youtubes are jamming up and the last videos are showing side by side instead of up and down.   Monika isn't haven't that problem so I'm assuming it's my computer.   Computers are really getting on my nerves BAD!

A funny SWAN... scratching or pruning, not sure.





This was just too funny and too cute...

2 years ago

Hi Monika and Vicky,

I'm going to post about Saturday and Tuesday vids today.  I'm catching up again!

Monika, I just love the poem.  It is so cute.  I'm glad the little duckies were okay.  Isn't that just like a gander...playing tricks!  

The ducklings were lovely, of course.  It feels so nice to watch them, so peaceful...like everything's right with the world.  I think ducklings do wonderful things for human health.  They lower stress.  And the diving ducklings look like mechanical toys diving and popping up somewhere else...so cute.

I've never gotten to see Chinese goslings before.  They are such a pretty yellow.  And their parents were "talking" to them.  I wonder what they were telling them.  But the very best vid was the one of the mama Canada goose and her best friend bunny and the way they took care of all the orphaned goslings at the wildlife center.  I almost cried.  That was so sweet.

Vicky, I'm getting to hate computers.  It seems that if it's not one thing wrong, it's another.  I think the all little goslings were orphans that the people at the wildlife center gave to the mama goose and bunny to take care of because they are so good at it.

Beautiful swan Monika....I love the way she is twisting around. 

Lee, Monika and I are trying to figure out if it is my computer that is showing the page stretched out.   She is seeing her videos normal (up & down) while I am seeing them side by side and the swan pics are way over on the right.   I am totally confused.   Is the page stretched out for you?

2 years ago

Hi Monika and Vicky,

Monika, the swan vids are beautiful and peaceful especially the ones with cygnets.  Isn't it lovely the way a swan can use its wings and body to make itself into a sort of boat?  They all do a perfect job of relieving stress.

Vicky, they look normal (up and down) to me.  Nothing's stretched out.  But I had this problem when I first got this new computer.  Do you have IE9?  I know your computer is new too.  Do you have an icon at the top of your browser that looks like a piece of paper jaggedly torn in half (Mine is on the right by the refresh arrow.)?  When I clicked this icon, the messed up page "fixed", and somehow it taught itself because it's never been messed up again.  BTW, I'm still a computer dummy.  My computer wizard cousin told me to do this.

I think it's your computer and I hope this helps.

Hi Vicky and Monika,

Monika, I didn't forget your set of swan pics yesterday.  My hands were giving me trouble and I was afraid I wouldn't be able to finish typing all the computer information for Vicky.  I hope it helps her.

So I'm back today to tell you that I had no idea that those long swan necks were so flexible!  The swan with his head lying comfortably near his tail is priceless.  That is a great set of pics!

Vicky, my cousin said to tell you that that function (the torn sheet of paper icon at the top of the browser) is called "compatibility view" in case you need that info.  

I'll be back to look at your new vids as soon as I can, Monika.

omgosh!!!! IT WORKED LEE!!!!!!!! Thank YOU and YOUR COUSIN sooooo much!!!!   Whew!!!!!   I wonder what that little thing does to make it work????   Uh oh....not sure if it's because I clicked that little jagged edge (probably not) but I'm noticing my 'w's' are faint in spots.   Now THAT is weird.   Do they look faint to you?  Regardless, I'll take that versus the stretched page ANY day.  lol
2 years ago

Lee, I tried to edit my post (above) but of course Care2 would have none of it. I just wanted to tell you never mind about my question about the jagged thing.....I reread and it's the compatiblility view. NOW....ask your cuz if there is any reason or something I can do to quit making the Youtube vids quit freezing on me.   I don't know if it happens to anyone else but it is soooo aggravating to me!

Monika, your newest vids are great!!!   I've said it before but I'll say it again....I love the way their little tails shake back & forth while they are swimming.    I don't know why I've always thought that a mallard looked like the Wood Duck.   The coloring is so pretty.   The European Finch is beautiful!!  I just loved watching the rooster and listening to his unique crow...so amusing.   Every rooster has a different sounding crow.  

2 years ago

Hi Monika and Vicky,

Monika, the vids are great as always.  What are the ducks in the first vid, the ones that look sort of like large mallards with huge bills?  The wood ducks and white mallard are lovely.  The European goldfich is so very different from the goldfinch we have here and very colorful compared to ours.  And I'm so happy to be able to see a junglefowl (where all our chickens came from).

Vicky, I asked my cousin about your youtube problem.  Unfortunately he said he'd have to look at your computer.  I'm sorry I couldn't get you any help on that one.  BTW, that "rooster" in Monika's vid is the wild Asian bird, the junglefowl, from which all our domestic chickens came so what you're seeing and hearing is the original crow!  It's like the mallard is to all our domestic ducks.

thanks for checking with the 'wizard' Lee.  lol  Even though I have to keep clicking the little jagged thing at the top (like you explained) I am so very grateful that you showed me. 

Where is our dear Monika?  She must be gathering up some new vids for us. 

Here's a video of some pet ducks enjoying the after rain effects.  The black ones are beautiful and again I love the wiggly tails.

Here I am, Vicky! So adorable ducks, I love them! These ducks look very happy and certainly have a good life and I am sure they bring so much joy to their owners. Thank you for sharing this video with us.
Northern Shovelers are the ducks about which you speak, Lee. This species is unmistakable in the northern hemisphere due to its large beak. Northern Shovelers feed by dabbling for plant food, often by swinging its bill from side to side and using the bill to strain food from the water. They use their highly specialized bill (from which their name is derived) to forage for aquatic invertebrates – a carnivorous diet. Their wide-flat bill is equipped with well-developed lamellae, allowing the birds to skim crustaceans and plankton from the water's surface. This adaptation, more specialized in shovelers, gives them an advantage over other puddle ducks, with which they do not have to compete for food resources during most of the year.

Oh my gosh those are  precious, Monika!!!   It's hard to believe that the first 2 oer 3 videos are of parakeets.  At least that's what I think it said.   They look like parrots and their feathers look so smooth & soft.   In the first vid that one little guy is sure mean toward the other one.  All that food and he didn't want to share.  lol  I wonder how the one in the 2nd video got those nuts out of the bag without ripping the netting.   I cracked up laughing at the budgie taking a bath....hilarious!   And all the budgies on the last vid are so colorful and sweet!  I may have to share the WaHoo video.

Now this is a strange (but cute) little bird...if you can find him. lol

2 years ago

That's Whipper, a Budgerigar from Winton, Southland District, New Zealand. His unusual appearance - long, soft, curly plumage, were caused by a genetic mutation. Whipper is actually classed as a “Feather duster” variety of budgie (a mutation which causes unrestricted feather growth), and is actually the 4th ever of his kind. He is slightly different to other feather dusters in the sense that the other 3 feather dusters have been known to merely sit and stare at the floor of their cage. Whipper, however, seems to be quite normal; he eats well, sings, is very social and does normal Budgie things; however he is unable to fly and it is also believed that he is blind.
I think Whipper is so adorable. He doesn't know anything is different about him; he's just a happy little birdie. He's very lucky to have such a nice woman taking care of him. I'm sure they bring each other a lot of joy.

Hi Vicky and Monika,

 I am so far behind again!  I'm trying.

Vicky, I love your vids.  There's nothing I like better than seeing happy, protected, well-cared-for ducks.  Whipper is adorable...an angora parakeet!

Monika, I've never been around exotic parakeets much, but I really like those in your vids.  And the budgies are so cute bathing and eating and playing.

I really liked learning about the unusual birds in your second set of vids.  I didn't know about the Meller's ducks and how endangered they are.  And I've never seen a spoonbill actually using that bill.  The heron on the shore seemed like he was as hypnotized as me.  That shoebill looks like a bird from another planet!  He is the strangest looking bird I've seen!  

Lee

Thanks for all the info about the Whippet Monika!   Your last vids are very interesting.   The patterns on the Meller is pretty with the one green feather making an appearnce.   I think the next one is a Spoonbill right?   He made me dizzy going back & forth eating fish.  lol  The Shoebill is definitely an odd looking bird with it's funny shaped bill and his crane/egret legs.   He sure likes to stare doesn't he?  lol  It looked like he was shaking his head at the camera person. hahaha!   I love the clacking he made at the end of the vid.

The Duck and the Kangaroo
by Edward Lear

Said the Duck to the Kangaroo,
    ‘Good gracious! how you hop!
Over the fields and the water too,
    As if you never would stop!
My life is a bore in this nasty pond,
And I long to go out in the world beyond!
    I wish I could hop like you!’
    Said the Duck to the Kangaroo.

‘Please give me a ride on your back!’
    Said the Duck to the Kangaroo.
‘I would sit quite still, and say nothing but “Quack,”
    The whole of the long day through!
And we’d go to the Dee, and the Jelly Bo Lee,
Over the land, and over the sea;—
    Please take me a ride! O do!’
    Said the Duck to the Kangaroo.

Said the Kangaroo to the Duck,
    ‘This requires some little reflection;
Perhaps on the whole it might bring me luck,
    And there seems but one objection,
Which is, if you’ll let me speak so bold,
Your feet are unpleasantly wet and cold,
And would probably give me the roo-
    Matiz!’ said the Kangaroo.

Said the Duck, ‘As I sate on the rocks,
    I have thought over that completely,
And I bought four pairs of worsted socks
    Which fit my web-feet neatly.
And to keep out the cold I’ve bought a cloak,
And every day a cigar I’ll smoke,
    All to follow my own dear true
    Love of a Kangaroo!’

Said the Kangaroo, ‘I’m ready!
    All in the moonlight pale;
But to balance me well, dear Duck, sit steady!
    And quite at the end of my tail!’
So away they went with a hop and a bound,
And they hopped the whole world three times round;
    And who so happy,—O who,
    As the Duck and the Kangaroo?

Hi Vicky and Monika,

Monika the vids are great.  I've heard of grebes and seen them a little on TV, but I'd known nothing about them nor had I seen their babies.  I have learned so much from the grebe vids.  They are wonderful especially the noise they make.  It sounds like they are laughing!  The ducks and coots in the last vid are lovely...every feather in place  almost like someone fixed them up to have their pics taken.  They must be very well cared for.  

I love the strange, funny, and charming poem about the duck and the kangaroo too.  It's a wonderful tale...a duck wearing socks!

Oh those are the cutest vids, Monika!!!  the Shelduck is beautiful...he looks like a patchwork quilt...lovely colors.  The 2nd vid of the ducks bobbing on the water make me want to get in with them cuz it is sooo hot here.   The Grutto (?) looks a lot like a crane or egret with its long spindly legs.  I love his long beak and the cute little sound he makes.   The pheasant is awesome!!!  I could listen to him sing for a long time!

This isn't a duck video and they don't have feathers but they do live in the water part of the time.   The vid is cute and I don't know how the little buggers jump up like that....brrrrr I know that water would make an iceberg out of me.  lol

Okay, now these little guys DO have feathers so I guess it's okay to post in this thread.  They are precious.

Hi Vicky and Monika,

Monika, your vids are great again.  The shelducks look like formally dressed mallards, and the pochards look like formally dressed redheads.  Maybe they are all going to a ball...so pretty.  I am always glad to see a shorebird like the godwit (grutto).  Most of the poor shorebirds are so endangered because of what we've done.  That lovely blue-faced pheasant can sing to me all day too.

Vicky, penguins have feathers.  They are just hard to see as individual feathers because they are so closely spaced to protect the penguin's skin from the water.  Also the penguin is covered with a coating of waterproofing which also protects him but sort of gloms the feathers together into what looks like a solid coat.  

I love the vid of penguins jumping into and out of the water.  Penguins are just so cute no matter what they are doing.  And the hummingbirds are lovely, flying jewels.  It's almost time for me to put out my hummer feeder.  Thanks for reminding me!

Hi Monika and Vicky,

Monika, I love pigeons and doves.  I always wanted one (or a pair) for a pet, but I never managed to get the proper cage.  Also I heard that they can carry a disease which can kill parrots so that made me a little afraid too.  I've heard they make very sweet, gentle pets.  The pigeon and dove vids are lovely.  The emerald dove is especially beautiful.  Of course I loved the chaffinch's song.  I never heard one before since we don't have them here.  I don't know what a curassow is, but he has a pretty blue bill!

Vicky, have a great holiday weekend!

Lee

Lee, curassows are one of the three major groups of cracid birds. Three of the four genera are restricted to tropical South America; a single species of Crax ranges north to Mexico. They form a distinct clade, which is usually classified as the subfamily Cracinae.

Hi Monika,

Well, I think I've lost my mind.  I watched the vids you posted Tuesday on Wednesday, and I could have sworn I posted about them.  I think I typed out a post and forgot to click "submit".  I suspect one of my birds made some noise, and I went to see what was wrong instead.  That's how these things usually happen.

I just love the vids of chickens.  I can't believe they have so many colors and feather patterns.  They are all lovely.  Of course, you know I especially like the ones that look like they are wearing pants and house slippers.  That bantam phoenix looks as large and magnificent as a peacock.  What a huge tail!  All the vids make me wish even more I could see a real chicken close up.

And the 2 graphics are so cute.  Of course I like the one of the hen brooding the puppies best.

I'll watch the new vids tomorrow, and this time I won't forget "submit".

Hi Monika,

Mandarins are just such beautiful ducks.  There aren't any here in my part of the world...another bird I wish I could see in real life.  I was amazed at how lovely the white one is.  I think their beauty has as much to do with their feathers and the patterns they make as with their colors.

I was puzzled by the redshanks and had to look it up.  Now I understand.  They live in Europe and Asia.  That's why I didn't recognize the name.  I like waders.  They look like they are walking on stilts.

I hope Vicky's okay and they haven't got her working out in the heat again.

Hi Monika and Lee.  I have tried 3 times to watch the vids but I kept getting jammed up.  Darn Care2.   Finally I succeeded.

Monika your videos are awesome!  I love each and every one. The singing Chaffinch is so cute and sings sweetly.  His bandit 'mask' looks like a Cardinal and his rosy feathers look so soft.  The Bantam Phoenix is so handsome....he's huge and I love his tail feathers.  I love the way the Emerald Dove puffs up and sings his faint song.  The bill on the Sickle Billed Vanga reminds me of a California Thrasher.  Of course the Mandarins are so colorful and the white ones are different.  I love the Fig Parrot and also the Hen and puppies.  lol

Hi Monika and Vicky,

Vicky, I hope you're okay and not having to work outside too much.

Monika, your vids taught me some things again.  I had heard of eider ducks but I'd never seen them.  Their faces look odd to me for some reason.  I'd never even heard of the garganey, but now I've even seen one!  The sickle billed vanga is pretty in it's own way.  But I was amazed at the beauty of the fig parrot.  I had never even heard of it.  It is gorgeous even compared to other parrots!  Such lovely colors and feathers that look sort of like eclectus feathers.  Wonderful vids.

Hi Monika,

I'm sorry it took me so long.  I've had a sinus infection and trouble with my hands the last few days.  All better now.  

All the lovely parrots and such unusual parrots!  The fig parrot is just so colorful.  Do you know if they are bred in captivity?  I can't believe I'd never even heard of them until you posted a vid.  The blue crowned hanging parrot is another I've not known about.  He has such a tiny sweet song.  The blue eared lory is such an acrobat, and the hawk-headed parrots are so strange looking but beautiful.

There's nothing cuter than a pair of budgies having a very heated conversation about something!

Don't miss my good Samaritan story.  It's so sweet.

Lee, I'm happy you feel better. While the larger species such as the Edwards’ Fig Parrots now regularly are being bred, it seems the smaller species aren’t that easy to breed. The general opinion is that fig parrots don't make good pets as they can't be tamed. Even if hand raised, fig parrots are said to lose their trusting disposition after weaning. However, some opinions have been voiced that fig parrots can indeed be good companion birds - so there may be some individual differences based on either genetic disposition or different handraising methods used by breeders that would explain the different opinions. These little parrots can be aggressive, which may present challenges when servicing cages as they will quickly bite the hand that comes into their cage to clean, or to change out their water or food dishes. They also get easily startled when someone approaches them.
Vicky, I'm sorry that you have technical problems. Hope you will be back very soon.

A White Hen
By Christina Georgina Rossetti

A white hen sitting
    On white eggs three
Next, three speckled chickens
    As plump as plump can be.
 
An owl, and a hawk,
    And a bat come to see:
But chicks beneath their mother’s wing
    Squat safe as safe can be.

Hi Monika and Vicky,

Vicky, I've got my cousin asking all the computer people where he works if they know anything about your problem.  Maybe we can get an answer for you.  

Monika, wonderful ducky vids!  The teals, both marbled and cape, are so pretty.  They look like chocolate and vanilla ice cream swirled together.  The crested duck looks my friend of long ago, Pompadour.  He was a wonderful flock leader and took good care of his flock.  The Muscovy and crested pochard were beautiful too.  

And my favorite chickens, silkies!  Absolutely lovely!  I so wish I could have one as a pet.  That kung fu chicken isn't afraid of anything, is he?  And he surely doesn't like cats.  What a tough guy!  

I really liked the gentle, serene poem also.  Christina Rossetti is one of my favorites.  She makes me feel like all's right with the world safe under that wing.

All your vids were awesome Monika.  I won't comment on each one (too many) but a couple that made me chuckle was the Kung Fu rooster (which I will post on F and the hen that stole the egg.   Which one was the Shelty?  The mother of the egg sure pecked the thief's head didn't she?  lol   So did the real mom get the egg back.  I can't tell if the one she wound up with was the original egg or another one.

Monika, the golden pheasants are absolutely beautiful.  Their baby looks very much like a baby chicken.  The ringed plover looks alot like a bird we have here called a kildeer.  Seeing the bamboo partridges were a treat.  I don't think we have any kind of partridge here at least that I've ever seen.  The lovely shelducks look liked they are dressed for a formal occasion...very elegant.  Even their babies are very well dressed unlike most brown or yellow ducklings.  All wonderful vids!

Monika, I am amazed at all the feather colors.  I think there are even more than parrots have.  I particularly like the ones in the 2nd and 3rd vids that look like they have long, dark beards!  As usual I also always like the ones that look like they are wearing pants and house slippers.  They are so cute.  The black, white and gold ones are gorgeous, and the white ones look very elegant.  Lovely!

Said the first little chicken,
With a strange little squirm,
"I wish I could find
A fat little worm."

Said the next little chicken,
With an odd little shrug:
"I wish I could find
A fat little bug."

Said a third little chicken,
With a small sigh of grief,
"I wish I could find
A green little leaf!"

Said the fourth little chicken,
With a faint little moan,
"I wish I could find
A wee gravel stone."

"Now, see here!" said the mother,
From the green garden patch,
"If you want any breakfast,
Just come here and scratch!"

Hi Monika,

I must hurry with this.  Yesterday I had storms and no power.  There are supposed to be more storms today.

Monika, of course I like the baby geese.  They are so cute.  The baby Egyptian geese look very much like the Canada babies.  That was surprising to me.  I would have expected them to be very different.

Geese would make excellent "watchdogs" I'll bet and are much cheaper to feed!

Beautiful, beautiful swans!  And the babies are beautiful too.  I especially like the sweet babes riding on the parent's back.  Adorable!

The poem is so cute!  Wishing won't make it so little chicks.

I love the poems, Monika...so cute.   Even though I can't see the vids (they are no longer question marks) I can at least enjoy looking at the pictures on the front.   Especially the chickens and roosters.   When I tried clicking on the video it then went back to the question mark thingy.  GRRRR!!

That's funny you mentioned Adobe Flash player, Lee.   I had updated to #11 right before then.   However I still cannot see the vids.   I can see the pictures but when I click to 'play' it turns into that stupid exclamation mark!   I just went to Youtube and I had no problem listening to videos so I'm just totally confused as to why I can't see them here.

Well stupid Care2 wouldn't let me edit my post!!!  What is wrong with this stupid site????  Anyway, in another group I was able to view a video (to begin with) then it stopped and I saw that idiot exclamation mark!  But you know what's weird?   I can watch videos on Youtube.  I give up.

F' this stupid site....still can't edit!!!!   I will delete all these posts in a day or so.   Video started playing on Youtube and then guess what appeared???  THAT STUPID EXCLAMATION MARK!!!  I am going to uninstall and reinstall Adobe Flash #11.  If it doesn't work then the hell with it!

Hi Vicky,

Vicky, do you have a computer person around somewhere that could look at it?  Maybe your computer is set wrong somehow so that it's not installing the player completely or correctly.  That's just from me so it could be completely silly.  It just sounds to me like some small thing is getting in the way.  I wish I could help.

Vicky, I also think your problems causes Adobe Flash Player. Exclamation marks appearing in videos mean that Adobe stopped working. You should redownload Adobe Flash. If it does not work, so I really do not know what else to do.

thanks Monika and Lee.  Yep I have the most current Adobe Flash and I just downloaded Quicktime too.  I can now watch videos in other groups and sites except here.  I just don't understand it.  I'm sorry cause I really love the vids you post Monika.

Hi Monika and Vicky,

Vicky, I love your vid of the duckling and the puppy.  So cute!

Monika, all the ducklings are adorable.  I don't know what kind of ducks those are in the third vid, but mama duck is beautiful.  Just what I needed.  There seems to be so much sadness.  Now I'm smiling.  

Maybe we need a new thread.  This one is very long.  I even had problems on this thread yesterday.  Maybe we've got a glitch.  I'll try to start a new one tomorrow afternoon.
