Turn and Duck!

I spent hours trying to come up with a fun title for this post.
I was disappointed to learn that although duck has
two meanings, both are spelled the same!!

Humor me please, 
maybe one or two of you could say "great title", if anyone even gets it.

Forster Tern

Female Mallard


Immature or Molting Male Mallards
 

And this poor girl who could neither duck nor turn,
we couldn't even wake her up!!
July 2nd (Ducks) & 29th (Tern) at the Marina

Sharing today with Stewart at Wild Bird Wednesday
Please stop by to view all the amazing birds from around the world.

    You made the ducks laugh OUT loud.

  8. Great title Debbie :))
    I really think it is and your pictures are wonderful as usual.
    It's really hard trying to think of unusual titles isn't it. Sometimes I spend ages racking my brains thinking of one and then just give up, lol.
