Our pet ducks


Recommended Posts

They're just visitors, not pets. For the last three days this pair (I assume it's the same pair) of mallards have visited our small koi pond in my backyard. I scared them off the first day when I was trying to take better pictures of them but they've come back. The pictures are bad because they were taken through our kitchen window which has a screen on it.  A cement pad and pergola are going where the weeds are this summer (on the right of the last two photos).

Since I posted this thread the female mallard kept flying off and returning every day, she did this for about 11 days and then stayed. She made a nest next to the pond and there are 11 duck eggs in it. I don't know how many will hatch, if any but I will update this thread if any of them do.
