Hello again Hervé.

I like ducks. Which is fortunate as these hang out in my backyard. ;)

Hi Cindy I thank you and my feathered friends thank you for your kind comments.

I'm interested in this photo, Marty, because today we have migrating ducks sitting out on ice floes in Lake Michigan. Last year they did come back until March 6th, so they are a whole month early. We've still got snow & bitter cold. You think they'll be OK?

Martin Bring on February 7, 2011

Hi Mabel. Ducks need fresh water to survive. I've seen them eat snow. Cold weather cuts down on their food supply which is why they fly south in the first place. Often in cities, though, people continue to feed the ducks and they will not migrate. Your ducks may be looking for a handout. Even with their downy feathers, the bitter cold of a Michigan winter has got to be tough on them. Given the huge population of ducks around the Great Lakes, the ducks have been through your freezing temperatures before.

Thanks for the info, Marty. They left here the next day (headed even further north). Fortunately for them, we're having a major thaw this week. Lots of water everywhere! There were literally 1000's of them out on the lake, so I hope they know what they are doing. Like I mentioned, it was a month earlier than they came through last year. Here's to Spring!
