|Blue-Winged Teal -- Magnolia Gardens, Charleston, SC -- March 5, 2011|
Wednesday night, I played hookey from the Charleston Audubon meeting. Gasp! And Patrick McMillan of SCETV's show, Expeditions, was the speaker -- a bigger GASP! Sorry Patrick! So I must have some pretty darn good excuses, right?! Hmmm... Well, let's put it this way. I do not regret my decision to stay home. I have seen Patrick speak twice this year and he is indeed a fascinating and inspiring speaker. I also participated in a field trip to Bulls Island with him in the Spring -- a wonderful event about which I will blog later as there will be a repeat event next Spring and why not help them (those folks at the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge) with a little publicity for this fund-raiser? No, I stayed home because last week, I had seen the preview below for a new program on Nature, "An Original DUCKumentary" and I had no plans to miss it!
And who does not just LOVE ducks, like this beauty?!

You will enjoy the amazing underwater footage of diving ducks -- their webbed feet work like underwater wings! You will also learn about the incredible strength of the LOVELY torrent ducks -- and so much more! I am so excited about this show I think I may just have to watch it again! After all, who does not just LOVE ducks?!
