Just Waddlin' Through

I was trying to recount to a friend yesterday the different birds that visit our yard, which usually consists of just the standard ones: mockingbirds, grackles, cardinals, and sparrows, even dove (especially in the cold of February and March). I forgot all about the mallards that stop in every spring to dig in the puddles in the yard. They were here on Sunday, the same day I chanced to see the baby cardinal flying. You'll notice the marshy, grass at the back of our yard...it was still too wet to mow, thus more perfect for the ducks!

We have a pair of mallards that visit the creek across the way from us every Spring. They are surprisingly friendly for wild ducks.
