The first order of business today is to make duck food. Siri slices up trunks of palm trees, adds some grains and then hand grinds the mixture. This then becomes food for the ducks and geese she raises. Nakhon Nayok, Thailand, Feb 03, 2017. via 500px ift.tt/2kwyrk3
Ducks, the reason why the beautiful reflections on Derwent Water didn't last long. With a lot of the water being frozen the ducks didn't have a lot of area to swim in, and when they saw me, they saw food.. ok I did share a sandwich with them, it was cold :-)
Ps. just look at that cloud over Skiddaw.
Oggi il tempo non era un granchè .... e allora al posto degli ormai canonici paesaggi mi sono dato al birdwatching....

I was taking photos in a public place, when an professional photographer happened to come. He was using a Canon 7D with a 70-200mm lens. Because I was using the T3i at the time, he let me put my camera on his lens! I got this shot. It was incredible using such a long telephoto lens that must have weighed like five pounds! It was really long, too! I know the photo is slanted, but I really like it!
Duck, eider, and goose feathers and down have long been popular for bedspreads, pillows, sleeping bags and coats. The members of this family also have long been used for food.
Humans have had a long relationship with ducks, geese and swans; they are important economically and culturally to humans, and several duck species have benefited from an association with people. On the other hand some anatids are damaging agricultural pests, and have acted as vectors for zoonoses such as avian influenza.
Since 1600, five species of duck have become extinct due to the activities of humans, and subfossil remains have shown that humans caused numerous extinctions in prehistory. Today many more are considered threatened. Most of the historic and prehistoric extinctions were insular species, these species were vulnerable due to small populations (often endemic to a single island), and island tameness. Evolving on islands that lacked predators these species lost anti-predator behaviours as well as the ability to fly, and were vulnerable to human hunting pressure and introduced species. Other extinctions and declines are attributable to overhunting, habitat loss and modification, as well as hybridisation with introduced ducks (for example the introduced Ruddy Duck swamping the White-headed Duck in Europe). Numerous governments, conservation and hunting organisations have made considerable progress in protecting ducks and duck populations through habitat protection and creation, laws and protection, and captive breeding programmes.
