Hello! Most of my posts take place around San Diego County, (Mostly Lake Murray) unless otherwise noted.
For more posts and photos, I also post on Hubpages, a site that is a bit different than others. Thanks!: Shorebirdie on Hubpages

Quacker's back!

I didn't do a full walk around at Lake Murray, but I did visit the area where many of the ducks hang out.  I saw most of the familiar ducks there including Quacker and even Bossy duck was there!  But, still no sign of the missing Pekin.  I think it was Aflac1 who is gone. It doesn't look good, there were vultures nearby, hanging around on the other side of the bay with a few seagulls.  But, I didn't see any white feathers over there.

Here's a picture of Bigboi.  I don't think he's doing well and I don't know how much longer he has to live.  He acts like Tom did when he started to get old.  Cinnamon's half sister was also seen.

This next duck might be Poquito, but he looks so much like Ducky!  Perhaps he's one of Ducky's ducklings:
