Flightless… and Nowhere To Go!

1 month 4 weeks ago #652300 by Nikon Shooter
At this time of the year, when many water birds are moulting, most 
of them are flightless. Since they have to stay with their chicks and
there is plenty of food and shelter everywhere, there is no reason to 
​fly away while they're all waiting for the new feathers to grow.

Thanks!

That was the only shot I got from a two hour presence
at the marsh. Most of the birds a gone, busy with their
respective chicks.

It is just so peaceful just by looking at them. I like the reflection too.

Mid Summer is a quiet season — read boring! — since there
are few birds at the same time at that place, so very little
commotion of any kind.

Thanks Stephen, one can easily see that the wings feathers
are not reaching the base of the tail when fully grown!
