Look who came to Visit!

We were playing outside yesterday when Shaelyn told me there were some ducks by the creek. Sure enough, a male and a female were walking around, probably looking for a place to build a nest. She tried to get closer and the male flew away, further down the creek. So I tried to sneak over and what did I see? There he was with a different female! They were swimming together while the other female was still back by the other area of the creek - two timer!! I tried to get a shot but they both flew away, leaving this original female walking by the trees. I don't know if they'll head back or not but we'll keep a look out for them.
Hope you can spot her - that was as close as I dared to get without her flying away too!

We used to have a pair in our back yard. They had some babies and they were so cute all marching in a line behind their Mama. Alan had been digging holes for the fence out back and I don't know why but they all fell into the hole. Following the leader, I guess. Bad mothering! Anyway, Alan got a picture of them before he took them out.

I never heard of a two-timing duck! The world is getting bad when that happens! Or maybe she was his deceased brother's wife and he was carrying on the line! Very biblical duck, if I have to say so myself!

Very fun! They must be fleeing our heat already!

We have a couple that show up every spring and sit on the edge of our pool. I've never seen ducklings, but I'm sure there is a nest somewhere near by.

Dave hates them on the pool, but it's always a good sign of spring for me.

Oooohhh - I wonder if they want to nest there. One year we had a family of geese move in. It was fun to watch them.
