December 28/ Nature Notes

Thin ice, Newmarket, Ontario

Geese and mallards are still swimming in the local waters and will hang around until the rivers, lakes and ponds freeze over. No kidding, there's no skating!

Please visit Michelle at Rambling Woods for more NATURE NOTES.

I don't think we are going to see a solid freeze this winter. Then again, in the past have seen it hold off until January.

Beautiful mosaic. Love the pretty green heads on the mallards. I am hoping we do not have a real cold winter.

Looks like the ducks may be the happiest of all about the weather. You featured these little creatures so very well!!

Perhaps today is more ice on our lakes. Last Sunday,I visited Rouge Park and noticed some frozen areas on the pond.
Pls. Take a look...

Last night was the first ice I've seen all winter - and it was pretty thin over those puddles! the ducks must be happy.

Anyone who would consider trying to skate on that pond would deserve to be wet. Gorgeous birds!

Sandra said...

looks to me like that ice is really really thin. LOL

Lowell said...

Hmmm...those darn ducks don't defer from dancing on the water even when there's no ice. Where's the ice? I thought you lived in Ontario? What's going on here?

Cute shots!

Brrr!

Some of the geese look like they're going to go sliding around on the ice. I enjoyed these winter shots.

The signs made me think of a line from a Jethro Tull song "skating on the thin ice of life". Aren't we all.

Leora said...

That is brown. I have taken photos of No Skating Thin Ice signs in the middle of the summer. The birds seem happy!

I think all the water will be frozen in the next week as I am sure you have our cold weather...Have a very healthy and Happy New Year EG.... hugs.. Michelle

I love your mosaics. I wish I still could make them. Nice shots and no I don't think I will try skating there. MB

Hi there nice birds - I wonder if they skipped school as ducklings and just can’t read!

I am glad we have no ice to worry about. And it´s good for the remaining birds. :)
