Tracks in the snow

Whenever it snows, we like to go for walks and enjoy the cold, white, quiet countryside. We often come across animal tracks.
Today, we actually saw a few animals. These ducks seemed perfectly happy in the icy stream.


  1. I wonder why they're OK in such freezing stream...

    I'm not from snowy region, but I like to walk around snowy and quiet places:)

  2. I think they stay warm with a special kind of feather called "down". Maybe you have heard of it. People often put down feathers in coats and blankets. Here is a link if you want to learn more about it.

    They are pretty amazing. I wouldn't last long in that water.
