Wildlife Wednesday: “The Figurehead”

As most of you know, we have an abundance of wildlife in our yard: squirrels, rabbits, deer, ducks, Canada geese (please may I ship some of those to you?).

Yesterday, as I was out and about doing yard work, I happened to notice something on our old wooden boat.

Normally,  they’re very easy to spook and will fly away, squawking up a storm, if you come near them.

But, I was able to get some pictures of this one with my zoom lens.

And, although certainly not the most handsome of birds…

…I couldn’t help but think that he resembled a figurehead on our “ship”.
