Iâ€™ve photographed many birds in my life, including songbirds and birds of prey, but when asked where the ducks are, I just get a blank look on my face. For some strange reason, Iâ€™ve never had a real interest in ducks or shore birds. As a birdwatcher all my life, I donâ€™t know why I never developed a liking for these fascinating birds.
