First shots of the day. Not dark but certainly not daylight either. Somehow a few in flight keepers.
We spotted them because this was in a place they have been seen before. Swamp land but on the edge of woods. Exactly what they like.
This bird wanted to join a few others on the other side of a dirt road. Finally he jumped and flew past me.
The Whistling Duck is another animal taking advantage of the changes in climate. Maybe six years ago a few strays first showed up. Now they are common in the Lowcountry swamps.
BTW, no duck quacks, they really do whistle.

Very nice! Sorry I missed this fly-by 😁
Thanks. I think you were watching a few others at the time.
What’s not to like? Lovely on the wing with soft grey and lovely glides.
Yes ! Another transplant with the growing heat in the Lowcountry.
