    Great irrigation systems encourage healthy duck populations

    Mother duck has been in this flower bed for a week or two with twelve eggs. Welp, they turned into baby ducks today.

    I think it's cause of the brass nozzles. Gotta be.

    my front yard

    I was crouching down to take that picture, and almost got dive bombed by the mother duck in the head. Needless to say I got out of there in a hurry.

    She was there nonstop for a week or two. I drove 1' from her a few times with my big ztr roaring before I ever knew she was there. She didnt even move. I could get a' from her and she would just look at me. Kinda neat.

    there's a creek in my backyard, and a duck had taken to nesting close by. every morning at around 5 the male would get up onto the roof of my garage and stark quacking. nice little alarm clock.

    i haven't seen the hatchlings yet
