Ducks Are Back

The ducks are back. It’s Spring and the mallard ducks are back to lay and hatch their eggs. The couple that visit my yard every year wander around looking for whatever they can find to nibble on so I have to be careful. When I left the other day, they were in my driveway, and, when I returned that evening, they were in my drive again. Some of the ducks at the lake near me have ducklings following them, but none following this couple yet. I worry because the lake has a lot of turtles, and the larger ones eat the babies. Yes, it’s the harsh way of nature, but I tend to care more for the cute, fuzzy ducklings than the ugly predatory turtles.
