It seems that many people on ATS/BTS just won't believe in anything unusual until they see it for themselves. Despite the fact that you can google "ducks in trees" and find many references to the fact that certain ducks (Muscovies, Wood Ducks, and Mandarin Ducks) roost in trees, there are few good pictures of the phenomenon, and of course many of the pictures that exist are difficult to document or back up with witness testimony. Also, many of the pictures just show ducks in branches with no way to tell whether they're 3 feet off the ground or 20. Not very convincing!

But here and now, I have proof for you. Here are two of my very own young Muscovies that I raised, roosting in a tree at dusk. This first picture shows how high up in the tree they are. I apologize for the darkness of the picture, but the ducks only go to roost at dusk and they are too high up and too far away for my flash to reach them.



There ARE two ducks inside the red circle, and I hereby swear that this picture has not been photoshopped, altered, or modified in any way except to scale it to a more acceptable size and add the red circle.




Here are the same two ducks in the same tree. Examining the EXIF data will show you that the pictures were taken today within seconds of each other. Again, I have cropped and scaled the photo but made no other alterations. If you want to see the untouched originals, I have them and can u2u or email them to you. In this picture you can clearly see that these are, indeed, Muscovy ducks and they are in the tree. This picture is a little better because I've moved much closer to the tree and zoomed in, and at this distance my flash had some effect.

I know some of you will still be skeptical, and you will say that I have photoshopped my ducks into the tree, or that I have used a cherry picker to put them up there and take the pictures. No, I assure you, they flew up there by themselves as they do almost every evening. And I don't even own a cherry picker or a ladder that tall. They are also not fake, or another type of bird with duck feet attached. They are real Muscovy ducks!

Okay, skeptics, start your attack runs! I know I'll soon be seeing the posts that say "FAKE!!" and "HOAX!!" and complain about how dark or blurry the pictures are and why don't I have a better camera and blah blah blah. But you know, I've done the best I could and I still stand by my position that these pictures are unaltered and are 100% PROOF that Muscovy ducks roost in trees!

I'm sorry I just cant believe those ducks are up there naturally.
are you sure someone didn't nail their tiny little feet to the branch?
I'm going to spend 1000's of dollars checking to see if they are CGI ducks
may i have a copy of the originals ?
i'll get back to you with the results.

oh if you look carefully at the left corner of the first pic there's a Sasquatch
giggling by the big bush. You can't trust them at all you know.

and if look above the duck farthest to the right, I think i see a UFO!!!
You have to watch those pesky greys and their shenanigans.
they have been very jocular of late.

are you sure they are your ducks? ...

It has to be fake, why, Let me put it this way:
In terms of the muscovey duck, bred from the Antarctic Wescobine vis-a-vie they can only flap 234,568 times per 3 hours per-se so as it were they only lift 23.067 cm off the floor ergo they cannot reach that branch so to speak.
Ipso Facto
Qua-ck.

Let me put it this way, how do I know the 2nd image is the same tree in the first image?

You are so linear in your argument. Presentation of the first, leads us to the assumption that the 2nd is also true based on your word.

As it were, if the first and 2nd image are indeed the same image, then its a matter of determining if in fact they are truly ducks, but could actually be more related to the Cormoran.

Those appear to be a pair of Pacific Northwest snow Mallards, or could be a mutant strain of the Peruvian Alpine duck.

Either way, Im going to have to see the negatives to believe it.

And in this particular instance, I thought id test out some of the techniques listed in this thread, and it appears to be true.....lol
www.belowtopsecret.com...

I thought Id test if for a laugh for a minute...I got a chuckle.

As for the OP, disregard what I posted above. I take you for your word man. Two ducks, in a tree. Until given reason to believe otherwise, you are a man of your word.

Peace

Naturally? Well, you'd have to explain what you mean by that. Is the desire to escape predators (and/or a playful puppy who weighs over 50 pounds and doesn't have anyone else to "play" with) natural? If so, then I guess they're up there naturally.


are you sure someone didn't nail their tiny little feet to the branch?


First off, their feet are far from tiny. I've got scars to prove it, as Muscovies have claws, and the drakes even have spurs. And, no I'm pretty sure no one got past the puppy and the geese and the pit bull to climb the tree and nail their feet. Besides, they were off the tree and back in the pond this morning.

Yes, sir. u2u me a email address and I'll get them out to you.

Pretty sure. Their color patterns vary a lot, so I can recognize them by their patterns, and besides they can fly quite well. If this wasn't their home why would they hang around here?

Nope, fail. Muscovies are a unique breed that originate in Central and South America; they aren't "bred from" anything. They're also good fliers and, although they are non-migratory, they can fly fairly long distances at need. Wild Muscovies roost in trees to avoid predators.

The pictures were taken so close together, I surely didn't have time to find ANOTHER dead tree with 2 ducks in it. Sheesh.

Nope, they're Muscovy ducks. Raised them myself. If I could have gotten a better picture you'd see the red areas on their faces that are a dead giveaway. Okay, they might be crossed with a wild duck because their mother flies off to a nearby pond sometimes and I don't know who she gets on with down there... But they are ducks and they are in that tree.


Either way, Im going to have to see the negatives to believe it.


Negatives? It's a digital camera!! If you would like to examine the original file straight from the camera with EXIF data, u2u me your email address.


I thought Id test if for a laugh for a minute...I got a chuckle.


I know .. all in good fun as are my replies. Eventually I'll state what my purpose actually was here in case anyone missed it.

P. S. I'm a female.

I deal with this in regards to attempting at great lengths to explain my experience with God.

My posts regarding this thread initially were intentionally just goofing around from another thread about how to argue, and it appears we have people that just naturally want to do that at times. I was not intending to derail your thread, and believe that this thread sheds light on peoples understanding the seed of doubt.

What is evident, that even in full witness of simple evidence and the honor of the presenter, that we will not believe until we have the images certified, your DNA taken, the securing of your camera and computer,
and a list of witnesses who have been drug tested and screened.

Is this what mankind has to look forward too? Is questioning everything the order of the day? Is no one to be trusted?

Perhaps a trend of trust and truth starting with each and every one of us is a way to turn things around.

Peace

Don't let it get you down HIFI - we're well on the way to proving my original "point" with this thread, which was basically, if it's this difficult to prove something as simple as the fact that some ducks really do roost in trees, why is anyone surprised that we can't PROVE flying saucers, aliens, Bigfoot, Nessie, or other anomalies? I could get a better camera and a big light and post dozens of nice clear pictures, and skeptics could still tear them apart and come up with reasons why they aren't "proof." TUP was joking about CGI, but I wouldn't put it past one of our resident skeptics to accuse me of photoshopping the ducks into the trees, or using decoy ducks and painting them black & white!

The point is also that no matter what you say or how unimportant (or true) your premise is, posting "100% ABSOLUTE PROOF" will get you "attacked." Had I posted this in chit-chat with a mild title and opening paragraph like "Hey look, my ducks are roosting in my trees at night. Isn't that cool?" I would have gotten very different responses.

Yeah, I know, my idea of "humor" is rather weird at times.

Gracious. I have learned a lesson of caution in reading the OP.
I entirely missed your point about ducks in trees. Having been raised with ducks, and in an area where there are many ducks, I actually had to ask my ex wife is she had actually seen any to which her response was no.

Without knowledge, and seeking reference, I naturally do what any person does and did a search and I came up with a blog which will most likely make you laugh.

www.wgbh.org...


One morning recently, as I sat at the table before the glass doors writing up some notes, I looked up and saw a group of wood ducks - three males and two females - perched on an oak branch at the edge of the yard less than sixty feet from where I sat.


and then the capper, lol.


Seeing a duck in a tree is like seeing an owl swimming in a pond, or a turkey soaring high overhead in the clouds.


As a child, I assumed that any body of water, no matter how small at times naturally had a fish in it. Why? Because fish swim in water. As an adult, I found out there were contributing circumstances that determined if fish would most likely be found or not found in a body of water.

It is our sense of circumstances. Deductive logic, intent, and even message that we all listen to. The internet is a wonderful tool, for I may have spent the rest of my life looking for ducks in trees.

Think of prophecy, and the difficulty of proving it be true or not? If someone had a prophecy about an experience other then where they were familiar, many would have a hard time proving or associating the prophecy with actuality.

UFOs? Aliens? Then there are the " one off " experiences. At an early age, where I personally did not know of such things, yet saw. Who can you tell and not be considered the ramblings of a child. No no, ducks arent seen in trees, and you probably saw a shadow. Show me!.

Sometimes things are privy to those of whom they are revealed, and reside within them a story too fantastic never told for fear of ridicule and mockery.

As an adult, God has talked to me; a revelation fantastic. Something I never expected, yet happened. Add to that, on one occasion, what appeared to be aliens in my room as a young child, and now ducks in trees to that list. I tell the story, openly and without fear. You have the option of believing me or not, or seeking the experience yourself.

Peace

You had me going for a minute there, Heike. I was reading this thinking, 'did I miss something? Is it widely believed by people that this doesn't happen? Ducks in trees?' I mean, they do fly so.....hilarious!

Interesting point though. And I love the way you showed it. I can't link from work but here's a URL that shows why they might be up there. Cheers.

Okay. It appears I can link from work. Didn't want to add this comment to my last post in case it messed it up. I'm not really sure how that happened. I just pasted the URL into my post and it turned into a link. (I can't use any of the buttons from my work pc). Cool.

Very nice ducks that you have. Only one thing bothers me though.

In the second image, on the duck on the right. Is it's eye glowing?

Does that mean they are possessed? If so then can they use powers of levitation as a boost towards getting up in the trees at night?



Yes, I get your point Heike. Just having a little fun, been blowing my brains out on way too many serious things that I'm starting to wonder if I'm becoming mildly unraveled. Gotta take a break from certain forums perhaps for a while and get my humor back.

Was this taken on the 14th of October by any chance?

What are you blind? Don't you know that they've been disguising Chinese lanterns as out of focus seagulls? Proof Positive!! of what I'm talking about!!
