Northern Shoveler Drake At Whitewater Draw   1 comment

Whitewater Draw (1 of 1)-17 duck blog

They waddle round, they do.
They eat all sorts of things,
And then they quack.
By barn and stable and stack
They wander at their will,
But if you go too near
They look at you through black
Small topaz-tinted eyes
And wish you ill.
Triangular and clear
They leave their curious track
In mud at the water’s edge,
And there amid the sedge 
And slime they gobble and peer
Saying ‘Quack! quack!’

— from “Ducks” by F.W. Harvey
