Flock Friday for April 3

This week, Rory with the ducks, broody chickens, and a new camera view.

I posted a similar (but different) picture to this one, of the ducks and Rory, on my personal blog:

The ducks on the back lawn, with their heads in the grass, looking for tasty bugs:

You probably saw these two pictures of the ducks and Rory on my personal blog:

I moved the mobile cam from by the cat house to the (currently off) waterfall area of the pond:


A view of the pond and ducks from that camera:

Gert was curious about the camera:




And knocked it over:

So I moved the camera to a better location, closer to the pond deck:


A view from there; you can see the ducks hanging out below the pond deck, where they’ve been spending a fair bit of time:

I suspect Gert may be considering that location for laying eggs, though haven’t found any more yet.

Swimming past the camera:

  2. I look forward to your photos each day. I hope to see some ducklings some day. 🐣
    I didn’t know there is a waterfall at the pond. I love the sound of rain and flowing water. I’m a true Oregonian.

    1. Thanks! We’re certainly hoping for ducklings, too. The pond waterfall is usually off, as it results in the water level dropping (leaking somewhere). I turn it on occasionally; I’ll try to remember to record a video the next time I do.

  3. Very cool your blog is awesome! What brand of outdoor cameras do you use? We have Ring cameras on our pond but the wifi network is wishy washy there. Also do those cameras bog down your wifi network speeds? We’ve been looking for a better solution for a long time for our pekins and black swedish. Thanks!

      1. Cool thanks so much we use google wifi for our mesh network but we haven’t found an outdoor solution for the google wifi as its an indoor product. I’m debating installing one of the google wifi mesh pods in our coop so it can broadcast to all the outdoor cameras. Unfortunately being in pennsylvania we get a lot of inclement weather so we have to choose wisely what we use outdoors. Thanks for the reply my wife and I love reading your blog!

        1. I’m glad you enjoy it. Eero is an indoor product too, but I have them in various enclosed places around the property: in our chicken coop, duck house, cat house, well enclosure, greenhouse, and a plastic box or two.
