Speaking of ducks, there has been a female mallard visiting our backyard for the last week or so. This morning, she was joined by another female. They flew in, walked and quacked their way around the yard, and flew out about 10 minutes later. Why they are attracted to the fenced-in yard is anyone's guess. We just have to make sure that we check the duck status before letting our Greyhounds outside.
Sorry for the fuzzy photos. I shot through a window screen.
