    • Thank you, Hien! There were thousands of ducks at the refuge yesterday evening, they were way out but I could ID Pintails, Wigeons, Shovelers, and Black Ducks so far. πŸ™‚

  1. FYI, not sure if you are aware however when you build a gallery like here the new Reader display the post in a different way. On a tablet device gallery images display on a line of their own. Just like you would get when simply inserting an image. They look the same on the page. When you click a gallery image on a tablet you no longer get to scroll through the set. Each displays like a normal image. Attempt to scroll and you return to your original page.

    As an admin it’s hard to know this because you see your posts different than a follower. It takes using a ‘clean’ tablet that does not have your admin info stored. I myself test with Ellen’s, she uses mine.

    So… short version, galleries no longer run on tablet devices. Actually haven’t for a while now. That is why even when I have multiple images you rarely see any galleries on my site.

    Whew, sorry for the long comment.

  2. A lovely selection of birds Donna, I am sure you enjoyed exploring the Pea Island NWR. The Wigeon is an interesting duck we do not have here. Enjoy living the birder’s dream πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Ashley! The migratory ducks are pouring in this past week. The weather went cloudy yesterday through tomorrow, first sunny morning I’m heading back there to see if the ducks are closer to the trail and/or hopefully flying overhead. We have the American Wigeon and sometimes sightings of the Eurasian Wigeon (which I once captured years ago). A EW was sighted at the refuge this past week, I’d like to see that one duck again. They are a pretty duck and sound cool too!

  3. Thank you, Donna, for sharing a fabulous series of photographs!

    For selfish reasons, I’m happy to see some of these birds as I know if you’re seeing them, they’ll soon be headed our way!

    Have a great new week!

  4. Such a delightful variety you have here. So many birds, such difficult choices which to post!!! (speaking from experience of course!) πŸ˜€
