I came down to the lake this morning to see a very strange assortment of birds on the raft.  It looked like the United Nations of Birds having a meeting on the raft

We had the long duck staying a distance from the Merganzers

The lone seagull defending the other side of the raft

The duck was not feeling intimidated at all

Merganzer’s getting their feather’s fluffed

You just have to ask yourself what in the world are they saying to one another out there.  Meeting to discuss the intrusion of Eagles and Loons on their lake or….

How to deal with a Golden Retreiver who likes to chase them in the shallows.  Is word getting out that he is a chicken that can’t swim well and you need but swim to deeper water to escape
