Ducks, coots, gulls in winter


This video from the Netherlands says about itself:

Lunch time during the 2012 Coots & Ducks on Ice Convention (some [Egyptian and domestic] goosy freeloaders also showed up).

Sloterpark, Amsterdam, 11 Feb. 2012.

Winter today. White frost on the branches of the trees.

A male blackbird on a lawn in the park. Much of the river is frozen.

A male and a female mallard swim in a hole in the ice.

When I start throwing potato peels into the water, others arrive as well: scores of black-headed gulls. And a coot couple; the only birds diving to catch the peels as they sink.

Mandarin ducks and greenfinches
