Outdoor Wednesday is hosted by my friend, Susan of A Southern Daydreamer.
My Outdoor Wednesday post was taken at Aldridge Gardens in Hoover. I have tried to stay on "track" physically this year with an exercise program. It's been so cold outside that it's hard to get the motivation to walk. But as I walked around the track, I noticed all of the ducks and geese.
How do they do it? How do they stand the cold? I mean, I know it's nature, but I cannot imagine how cold they must be, and yet they were swimming in the water (water with a thin layer of ice, mind you).
And I wondered as I walked, and hoped that you might have the answer for me (forgive my lack of knowledge and expertise in this area). I always heard, there are no dumb questions, so humor me...
Up north, do ducks/geese ever get stuck in ice? True I know it's a good reason that birds fly south in the winter, but surely some ducks and geese stay? And what do they do? Do they swim in the icy waters? Do their feet ever get stuck?
Thanks for stopping by Bloggeritaville! Be sure to drop by her blog to visit all OW participants.
See you tomorrow (this evening links will be up) for Thrifty Thursday!
Happy Day, y'all!
