Thanks to everyone for visiting and commenting. I thought I'd mention that although the duck looked injured with the feathers sticking out, he did eventually fly back to the water. However, he kept well away from the other ducks which made me think they had been picking on him.

I eXpect many can relate to his plight, on some level... Great piX!

Carver said...

Thanks again to everyone for visiting. As I mentioned a ways up I was relieved when the duck flew back to the water because I wasn't sure it could fly at first. I think it was more fearful of the other ducks than it was of us but it did find a spot in the water away from the others. Although I didn't see it in a fight (it was already on the bridge when we got there), that's what it looked like had happened.

The floor boards, the railing and its shadows make this a perfect composition. The bird adds life/drama to it! Love this!!

My heart goes out to that poor fella. I hope he makes it in his journey.

Geese and ducks molt their flight feathers and are unable to fly for 3-4 weeks during the summer. This male is molting into feathers that look more like a female so that he can hide more easily. Right after the molt he will regain his green head and gray body breeding colors as pairs mate up during the fall and winter...

Carver said...

Michelle, Thanks so much for the information about the duck. I also posted on your site. I appreciate it so much.

Thanks again to everyone for visiting.

You're welcome, I didn't want you to worry about it.I forgot to add that my blog has a post (and photos) from a day ago about mallard fights and they do fight and do get injured when the "fairer" sex is involved.
