Description
 
Please ... don't write and ask me ... I don't know why they are called "Puddle Ducks", but that's the classification given to our favorite waterfowl. (Charlotte wrote with the answer! Please see below images.) This pattern packet contains six individual close-up designs including the mallard hen and drake, redhead, canvasback, black duck, and green teal. Plus there is an extra large mantel piece pattern available in two heights (10 1/2" and 6") just filled with these delightful creatures. Great for Wood Burning! Puddle Ducks are called puddle ducks because, as opposed to species which spend most of their time in oceans, open water, or fast flowing streams and are diving ducks or sea ducks, the puddle ducks spend their lives for the most part in ponds (puddles) and are surface feeding ducks. The term "puddle ducks" includes a number of different species such as Mallard, Gadwall, Pintail, Widgeon, Shoveler, Wood Duck, Blue-winged Teal, Cinnamon Teal, Green-Winged Teal and Hooded Merganser. Here in west Texas we have playa lakes which are formed when rain collects in low places and then dries up. These little ponds are the homes to many species of migrating birds which fly through the central fly-way, such as Mallard, Teal, and Shoveler. Some of the puddle ducks nest here. You probably live in the eastern fly-way which would have some of the same species and more. I have a close friend whose nick-name is Puddle Duck. I guess she is a permanent nesting puddle duck in west Texas. This is probably more than you wanted to know about Puddle Ducks but we couldn't resist. We enjoy them too. Thanks again for your patterns and books and terrific web-site. Charlotte Curry and Camille Shanks (aka Puddle Duck)
