New ducks settling in at Pine Farms Orchard

 Photos by Barry Wallace
Regular visitors to Pine Farms Orchard, on the 16th Sideroad, north of King City, have been watching as Costello, the Muscovy Duck, who lost his pen-mate Elvis in 2013, adjust to his new young pen-mates who arrived last September.   Two of the new ducks are pictured above.   They posed for the camera quite cooperatively while perched in their pen and they seemed quite comfortable with their surroundings despite the freezing temperatures.   But of course they have all those feathers, don't they?   Not goose-down of course, but duck down is probably quite comfy also. Did I mention that the new young ducks are Elvis's offspring?
Please comment if you wish.
