New Visitors!

Check out these visitors we had in our pond yesterday morning.






Check out the colors on that fancy Mister Duck! The pictures aren't that great because we took them from pretty far away to avoid scaring them. They hung out with us for a couple of hours.

Aren't they so cute?!?! These are Wood Ducks and they are the first ones we have seen in our pond. So, you know what this means, right? Mister Man has a new project. Wood duck boxes for our pond!!

We had already talked about doing this but now we can see it would definitely be worthwhile. I suppose that now is really the time to put it up so hopefully we will have one for this season. Wouldn't it be SO FUN to have baby ducks in the Spring?!?!

We have Mallards that nest at the school every year. In the spring they have their ducklings out walking in the playground for all the kids to see. It's something the kids in the classroom closest to the nest take a lot of pride in.

I think you just floated a painted wood duck out there! He doesn't look real! So colorful.

Isn't he handsome? We had a duck family that would come around our old house all the time. My son was young then, so we let him feed them crackers. The babies were so cute.
