I know It's in Here Somewhere

This is SuperDucks distant cousin LazyDuck
As you can see she is not to ambitous, she would rather just loaf around. Her exciting part of the day is pulling her downy feathers. When she really gets energetic she will actually try to stand on two feet.

Now really, can anyone tell me why birds like standing on foot all the time. I have noticed this quite a bit. I have photos of several different species standing like this.

Thank you for visiting my site. I consider myself to be lucky living where I do. Everyday I wake up to a wealth of interesting visual scenarios. Most of my pictures are Wildlife and Nature taken from around the area. The area specifically being Fort Frances Ontario on beautiful Rainy Lake. Feel free to comment on what you see. I look forward to hearing from you. If you like what you see, please rate it. Better yet, bookmark the site and drop back often. I will be posting daily.

What a clever shot, and your description makes it worth of Silly Tuesday humor. You think the birds stand on one leg just to impress you, perhaps? Lee you might just bring out the best in the birds, where they are trying to impress you!!!??? Wonderful shot, really!
