I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.


Thank you for stopping by. Just to let you know, I'm still blogging but have moved to Geogypsytraveler. Hope you'll follow my adventures. Just click here.

SWF – Black-bellied Whistling ducks

01 Black-bellied Whistling-duck San Benito TX

These crazy ducks also perch on high wires, which I haven’t seen yet.

Sorry for the poor quality photos. Just learned that the phone camera doesn’t zoom very well.

Those are some cool looking ducks. Is that a grackle to the left of them on the bottom pic?

Yes Jazz, that's a grackle. They are everywhere!

Ducks and Grackles, you are surrounded, not even counting the squirrels and Texans.

Now I'd like to see ducks on a high wire, I can't even imagine it with their webbed feet! They are handsome.
Hope all is well Gaelyn and yes that was a halo around the sun, another sign of changing weather...rain, lots of it last night and this morning.
Blessings and smiles

Those are strange looking ducks. Another one I'll have to look for next time I am in the Valley.

I can't imagine ducks curling their little webbed feet around a wire...but, ducks are pretty talented little critters!

Now I.M. knows why them ducks float. Their scrappin' the tar off'n them there rooves onto they're bellies, which is then waterproofed, makin' it so they don't sink.

I.M. has gots to say yer blog are the greatest fer educationing folks like I.M. whose gots lots of knowin, but still has few wholes in hisownselfs knowlege of some things.

That black one in the second picture does not swim very good. Love it.

Very interesting. On a wire? It is strange to see them on top of a house.

We set a record for the amount of rain in March and so far in April-(2days)-it has done nothing but pour the wet stuff. Yikes!! MB
