Enjoy the great outdoors of nature and birds in particular.
Nice pictures, Margaret. I don't keep up with birds very much but I'm glad to know of the Elder Ducks. ..
Hi Margaret-These Eider ducks are very cute. Never seen them before. So, thanks a bit much for the lovely photos. Happy Easter!Peace :)
Eider down belongs on eider ducks.Love the second photo particularly.
A good "catch", the ducks look really good.
Wonderful shots of ducks in water. They are having great time.
Beautiful images of a magnificent species which aren't found in Australia. I also haven't seen Eider ducks in France, but that is not to say that they're not there.
Hello Margaret, the Eider are cool looking ducks. Great series! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend! Happy Easter!
Beautiful photos of the Eider Ducks, Margaret. May you have a blessed Easter Weekend. Jo
Great pictures of the wing extension! I think it's horrible that people use their feathers for comforters and pillows!
What an unusual face! I can't believe how many new birds I discover on my blog visits.
You are such a wonderful photographer of our feathered friends ~ your love for them shows ~ thanks,Wishing you a Happy Weekend ~ ^_^

I have always heard or read of eider ducks, but did not know what they looked like... lovely birds...I especially like the wing-flapping one!
Dear Margaret!May you find the renewal of hope, health, love and the spirit of God. Happy Easter to you and your lovely family.
A pair of beautiful ducks.Nothing to do with beauty and the beast.
Loved the post and pics.Happy Easter to you and your family.
Eiders are such contrasting but pretty ducks, male or female. And I just love their calling at this time of year.
Eider are great birds - loved watching them when I lived in the NE - used to see them a lot around Holy Island.Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
