Mr. Mallard is BACK!!!

MR MALLARD CAME BACK!!!  I'm so happy!
Right at dusk last eve as the darkness began to set in, I caught sight of the couple on the opposite bank.  I hoped it was MY couple so I slid open the den window and whistled.  They both turned to look and made a bee-line for our bank and then across the lawn--Hurray, hurray!  I could not stop smiling!  I grabbed my camera and was able to snap these pictures looking down at them under the window.

I hope the Mrs. scolded him soundly for causing her such distress!  Hubby was not willing to think Mr. had met with disaster as I was yesterday.  He theorized that maybe she had laid eggs and that Mr. was sitting on them while she had a break--ha! 
But now it is apparent they did not lay eggs yet or they would not be here together again.  BIG SIGH!  You know how we love our wild critters in the back yard and would be so sad if Our Couple met with disaster!


Thanks for visiting today and do come back again soon!  We love company!

My heart to yours....

Awww! That is so sweet. How funny that you whistled and they came. Love that.

Every Easter my Grandpa would bring me and my brother two baby ducks. We would have them until September or October until my Dad got tired of cleaning the poop off the patio and we would take them to one of 4 parks with very large ponds (can't really call them lakes) that we have in town that already had ducks. For at least 12 years we always got baby ducks at Easter.
Thanks for sharing. Sue
