Monday Mischief: Harold and Maude Return

Every year Harold and Maude, or their children or grandchildren, have come back to nest in the front yard. Ducks do that. The experts at Ducks Unlimited say that ducks “imprint information about their home breeding and wintering areas and use navigational cues to return to them. Adult female ducks often return to former breeding sites.”

We have been blessed for the last 16 year’s as we have watched Harolds and Maudes waddle around the grounds, swim in the pool, and ultimately waddle their ducklings down to the river.

Luckily the ducks are in the front yard. The dogs would love to chase them, and do roust them if they fly into the back or worse in the pool, but the front is leash only territory so the duckies are ‘kind of’ safe. They must feel at home since they keep coming back.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Monday Mischief: Swimming Lessons

Swimming Lessons

The first days of SUMMER and every family was busy teaching their youngsters to swim. There was a paddling of very little ducklings and also a raft of adolescent ducks on the creek and several gaggles of geese on the river.

We want to help them swim.

Mom says no!

We say “No fair!!!”

It’s summer and we want to splash.

DogDaz Zoo: Koi-ing a Duck

Source:

This picture makes me feel simultaneously peaceful and anxious.  I love the calm swimming of the duck (or is it a black swan) on the pond, but then all those Koi make me anxious because they are so crammed in and they look hungry.  How does it make you feel? – DogDaz
