This duck is getting a lot of his feathers plucked out defending a female. He's not being picked on, he just insists on protecting his girl.
Here is the couple together. There is another male that constantly hangs around the two. I think the female might be Caramel or one of the "flycatcher" ducks. When that male isn't looking, she bobs her head very vigorously at the other male:
One or two of the wild mallards was picking on these two ducks. They comforted and head bobbed to each other after the incident.
The Canada goose that Jill likes is playing peace-maker between her and Waddle's mate. At first, I thought maybe the Canada goose is a female and pairing up with the other gander, but I think he's just protecting his friend from Jill. She's been a little aggressive towards him lately. At first, the white goose was very mean to Jill, but now she's mean to the white goose. Now, she's mad at the Canada goose. I've noticed that Canada geese are great peace-makers and like to keep flock conflicts to a minimum. In the meantime, Baby Goose, the small Canada goose that arrived at the lake as a juvenile, is very upset and went over to find Waddles so that he could be with her because Jill has been exceptionally mean to him, too. (Waddles, by the way, is nesting in a secret location and is doing well).
And, finally, Fred the Yellowlegs says "Whee whee whhet!"
