Coot, Pewit gull, and Carp;

When I visited my city park to see the orchid exhibition early this month, these migrating birds were still in the lake at the city park.  I thought LUCKY me (*^_^*)  
I could see them again after a month later
Pewit gull were waiting for me lined up again.

This is the overall scenery of the lake.

A young couple with a little boy was feeding the birds. 
It seemed as if the dove was trying to talk to me :-) 
Lake was crowded with lively atmosphere under the sun.


A duck won the fight over food against carp. 
(dried wheat gluten, which we can buy from the store in the park) 
Hope you can see it from the pic left-side.

I'm linking this post to "Saturday's critters" & "id-rather-b-birdin’ ".


ps; Thank you very much for stopping by as always♪ I wished to link this drafted-post. 
                As I promised, I'll visiting you soon, friends♡♡♡

Such beautiful pictures. Especially the ones with the gulls in flight. (I am too old and too slow and can't ever get a good flight pictures.)

Poor carp -- they will have to wait until the duck is full before they get to eat any of that wheat gluten! Such a cute picture.

Thanks for posting. (I am sure we all have days when we have time to post, but not to visit. I know there are many times when I get behind on visiting. You are not alone!)

Wow...what a fabulous post. And awesome images. LOVE the bird inserts you included. Well done Miyako, well done.

It's wonderful that you have a good place near to see many birds or so big carps. Their fight on food is fun. Observation of birds or animals is fun. Some birds come in our garden and I notice sometimes each birds' temper.
Have a lovely week!

Shelly said...

What a lovely place, my dear friend! I would have so loved to have seen it all, especially the wonderful birds. So many, and all so active. I'm glad you got to go, and I'm also glad you shared it with us! xo

That duck is very brave to take on such a large fish.
