We got more than we bargained for when we moved into our new place. We have a huge backyard and our neighbors on both sides of us have built up their backyards just enough to have all the rain water drain into our backyard. As a result, we have a cute little "pond" that has attracted mallards. First we had one happy little couple swimming about, but the party kept growing and we reached a record high number of attendees this morning...7 couples! We actually love them and hope to see some ducklings this spring.
