There were four different species of duck as well as the Canada Geese here on the pond on April 28, 2012 when I took these pictures from my yard. The ducks here were: Wood Ducks, Ring-Necked Duck, Mallard Ducks, and a pair of Blue-Winged Teal Ducks. They were all bunched up in the spillway area of the dam because the cows were wading in the pond a little ways up on that same shoreline. Funny to see the papa Canada Goose basically surrounded by all those ducks. Good thing everyone gets along well. I was quite happy to see the ducks. It won’t be long now before the geese have their new arrivals. The goose eggs should hatch out any day now. Will be nice to see the Canada Goslings when they hatch. I’ll keep you posted.
