DUCK UPDATE

A few weeks back I wrote a post about an invasion of Mallards.

It seems as though the Drake population has dwindled.
The "chosen few" so to speak.







I suspect that her nest is under these bushes or around the other side of the house.





They are frequently seen early in the morning
or at cocktail time !!





Happy cinco de Mayo..

Missy, The ducks are pretty. I love the color of the drake's head. I just read the previous post. I too hope they safe the trees and that beautiful lilac. Seems, most company just wipe it all out, to do build. Like you said a "small amount of planning " could save on landscaping.
Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

Perhaps the other drakes have left to find females elsewhere.

Such gorgeous pictures, Missy. I hope you will have a nice weekend. Our county is having a plant sale tomorrow IF the rain will let up!

Very nice ducks - I often think that if Mallard were rare people would rave about the colour of the male - I think they are under appreciated!
