Ducks!

Ducks!

When we left our house this morning I saw this pair of Mallard ducks on the lawn right across the street.

He stayed really calm but checked us out and watched us until we were gone.

I haven’t ever seen ducks in our neighborhood before, so this was a very rare and exciting treat.

Do you ever see ducks or other wild animals around where you live?

Yep! I used to see them occasionally when I was younger in our yard. It was always a fun treat when they showed up. I recently saw some on a patch of grass in the middle of a busy parking lot. I was worried about them choosing that place to hang out. Makes me wonder if they were just chased out of their natural habitat.

That was such a Mr. Rogers post : )
Yes, while hiking in Mosquito Creek the other day we saw this totally exotic bird with a very long neck.
Otherwise the pug, Kiko, who lives above me is quite wild.

Mr Rogers? I guess so. You should see me in a cardigan!

Ehh…I’ve seen those ducks at a designated park around here. At certain times in rainy days..especially in Autumn…they wander in huge flocks.

Funny how they wander from park to park.

I also recall seeing two eagles on top of this tall church. Standing on the cross. Some say it was epic. I say it’s “something you ain’t see everyday”

Ah! You’ve just reminded me to throw some quinoa out for the pigeons that perch on my 5th story windowsill 😉
