Hmmm, Fancy That!


A hen Mallard (Anas platyrhychos) preening her feathers! Preening is important to birds, especially birds like Ducks who have to keep their feathers ship shape to keep the cold and wet away!

    Another great shot. It is quite fascinating, the positions they can get into while preening.

    • Ruth, thank you! They can sure be contortionists at time!
