A Visit From The Mallards

When I opened my front door this morning I was greeted by two Mallards.  There is a small lake about four houses down from mine, so I guess they're just taking a stroll through the neighborhood.  Or maybe word got out that there's always food out at our house for the squirrels and birds.  They did seem to enjoy the bread I tossed to them. 

Can you believe March is almost over?  Time is really passing by quickly!  Hope everyone is enjoying Spring!

Such a cute pair!

He seemed very protective over her...so sweet.



The squirrel was checking to see if he was missing out on anything good.

We both just featured Mallards! Yours look very tame, too. If you feed them they will remember and keep coming at the same time.

So cute! What a nice surprise to see!! Where we used to live right below us was a pool; two ducks would come flying through our yard and spend time in the pool below us every afternoon; it was always fun to see them landing there :)

Spring is going well for us!

What a cute couple. That must have been a pleasant surprise when you opened the door.

Spring hasn't quite sprung in our area yet. We are getting lots of rain and right now the wind is howling. When the weather does break it will be beautiful.

they look like they were discussing the quality of the food on the duck smorgasbord. so cute and I hope they shared with the squirrel. is that the mother squirrel with the cut?

Looked like there was a mister and misses there. So cute - don;t you wonder if they think about things - how they do it - or do they do things by instinct? Hope you have a great weekend. sandie

Could be a start of a joke---two ducks walk up to a house....

seriously, these are great shots, those ducks must know you are an animal lover. The squirrel is probably thinking wow, I've gotta get my eyes examined--"did I just see 2 ducks?"
Have a great weekend Marie.
