a mallard duck couple moved into the pond and it looks as if they are going to stay.. i spotted them from my bedroom window and later walked right up to the pond edge to take some photos..

the pond has a thin layer of ice on it this morning, but i can see them splashing around on the edge.. i'm hoping that's a good sign that they are staying.. i would love to see baby ducks..

I really like the emerald green color that some of the have. When they are wet and shinny its just a gorgeous color.

They are beautiful ducks!  A great opportunity for you to have them move in.

The "men" need the bright colors to lure the ladies, then the ladies need to dress themselves with more natural colors so they can blend in, so they can raise their offspring in safety.....no????

I used to own a houseboat that I use on weekends.  Each morning, around 4:00am, ducks would come to my boat quacking for breakfast because the dock owner used to feed them at night.  I sort of developed a dislike for ducks.  smile
