Ducks on the Pool

April 1st, 2007

April 1st 2009

Every year a pair of Mallards drop down to our pool—usually on April 1st. This year my son phoned me from Ottawa to say, “There are ducks on the pool.” He was wrong. I checked.

He wasn’t really wrong, just early. The ducks showed up yesterday, four days late. Unfortunately we don’t have a picture of yesterday’s ducks as they were frightened off by some quick movement on the photographer’s part.

Just imagine the ducks in the above picture, as somewhat larger.

You have ducks I have cats! I bet they appreciate the pool you have provided for them! ;)
