Mollie and I were come home from our walk one morning.
We were almost a block from home
when these quacking Mallards flew overhead.
Some time later, I saw this across the street.
At first I thought it was two of them mating.
It looks more like they were fighting for the rights !!
They spent the next hour or so chasing each other
in and out of these bushes.
They waddle faster than I do so it was really tough to get pictures.
I wasn't sure how many there were until the next day.
Then I saw the female as well.
She may be nesting under these bushes.
The boys are still hanging out...
Here she goes with her entourage, the little hussy.
I spooked them a bit by going outside.
The morning light was awful through my storm door.
There isn't any water very near here.
I fear the Hawks may make quick work of this clutch.
We'll have to keep a happy thought.
