Make that...nappin' on the dock of the cove, and that would be accurate! Lucky ducks.
Amy said that two pairs of mallards have shared their small pond by the house all winter. Not together as couples, of course. Just one couple at a time, and the kids know the difference in the two pairs.
One pair doesn't fly off when the kids go outside. The other couple is very shy, so they fly away to the cove water. I am sure they are all nesting somewhere, so hopefully we'll have a new generation of duckie duckies when it warms up.
A bald eagle was also spotted further out in the cove by Amy, so I will be on the look out for that nest...hopefully.
That's your critter report from paradise today, well, except for our two who are doing their usual in and out routine...after a thorough inspection of stuff brought in from the Moho that (still) needs to be put away.
Progress. It is slow.
The sun is shining. The deck is lonely. It has missed us. It needs a body to sit and enjoy the scenery.
No, work comes first. Bugger.
Who wants to be a responsible adult when the sun is shining???
