Mama Mallard is Back

Depending on how long you've known me, you may or may not remember our Mama Mallard.  Mama Mallard made her nest in our front yard last year.  What a fun experience it was!  We escorted this proud Mama and her three ducklings down to the lake on Memorial Day where they started their adventure. :)
  
Well, Mama is back!  Seeing that we gave her a bath tub, food and even sprayed her with the water hose, oh how she loved that, it's no surprise that she has returned to the same nest. :)  And we're happy to see her!

Happy Friday everyone!  I will be picking up my mom and grabbing coffee and doing a little shopping.  Hopefully I'll find a treasure at the thrift store. 


I'm pretty and I know it!  lol

Mama is wondering why her tub is so small...
I do need to get her a larger tub. LOL  This is smaller than the one she had last year.

I know I haven't put on this much weight!  This can't be my tub!

Ah that's awesome. We used to have two pairs of mallards each had mates and yeah the females are the ones that make the loudest duck calls lol. The males just quack like there's something stuck lol.

After they had duck-lets we bought one of those big collapsible pools and they had a blast in it. Awesome Marie!!

I live near the gulf here in Texas and we see a lot of ducks around this area and also some plopping down in some unexpected areas lol.

Oh my goodness, it's good to see Mama again. She is one smart girl to return to your yard. That means little ones later, how exciting.

I hope you found some goodies at the thrift store Marie.

Chatty Crone said...

She is so cute in that tub. And she likes being sprayed with water??? lol And did you find anything from the thrift store?

Catherine said...

Haha! How wonderful to watch her all summer! She clearly knows a good home when she sees one. But ummm.... yes... a bigger bathtub is in order I think. Perhaps a 'kiddy pool'. ;)
