    You won't believe who showed up in my yard the other day....


    I guess they'd been hanging out in one of the neighbors kiddie pools and saw the lunch buffet of all different kind of bird feeders with seed scattered all over the ground below them and decided to waddle on over for a bite lol!

    The ducks did not want you to feel left out of their visiting list. They are equal opportunity eaters and your grass does look tasty.

    Just be careful of duck doo doo. Good thing they are not geese, then you get Goose goo. Then it's hard to sit on the lawn.

    They're very cute. I'd love visitors like that but I'm afraid our tomcat would love them even better. Those are the perfect dinner size for him. :rolleyes: You'd better keep them at you place I think. They're safer there.
