Pretty decent photos, but I've not seen anything like that either. Nice to look at though.

Went to the river again today and got some pictures of the white ducks.  Poor quality pictures, but I think they're good enough to identify them.

I cannot find them on the internet.  I'm wondering if they are some kind of domesticated Mallard or a Mallard cross of some kind.  I've not seen any except in a group of Mallards.  Anyway, here's some of the pictures I took:

It's also nice for going just as slow as I want while looking for something (like ducks in the river), without wobbling all over the place.

Yes, booklover, I love my recumbent trike.  I haven't ridden a regular bike for about 12 years because they were hurting my hands and rear no matter how much padding I tried.  This recumbent feels almost like riding in an easy-chair.  No more pain :)

They also go just as fast as a regular bike or faster, because you sit down low and more or less reclining so there is less wind resistance.  Going uphill they are slower, but going down, faster.  They can also slide in the gravel without tipping over and you can stop and enjoy the view or whatever without getting off.  Just sitting in the comfortable seat.

Spud, a recumbent trike, how cool!  I always think it looks fun when I see people riding them!

Hey Tony! Your welcome.

And thanks Sentient.

That's OK Spud - we will figure out what ducks they are.
