Feeding ducks in winter in Barrie has led to a lot of mallards n black ducks and this winter a couple other kinds of ducks not migrating anymore. We had a red headed duck,& a northern pintail right up until January. Now we have an american widgeon here still. I didnt see it today but was here yesterday. And as you can see it takes its toll. This one little female is going to loose her leg. It is not easy for them to get around on the snow and the competition for food fed by humans is well look out. People mean well,but it is not good. Now these ducks will not migrate. This female is getting more attention and food from people,but it is a sad thing to see her in this shape. Along with the ducks were a few pigeons. Spring is in the air. These males were really strutting their stuff. Oh so cute.
