The Zen of Preening

I could watch Black Ducks preen for hours.


A daily avian ritual, preening helps keep feathers oiled and supple, well-aligned for flight, and free of dust and parasites.

I personally find it mesmerizing; watching as together they all stretch and bend their necks, lift wings and extend limbs as if they were in some advanced yoga class!  😉


Every single feather is tended to in a deliberate, methodical fashion, from head to tail they go.


Reaching even those hardest-to-get-to places!  😉


And the reward for all this hard work?

Finishing up with a nice cool drink!


Then it’s right back to paddling and dabbling for these plucky little ducks.


Off you go now!   😉
