There are still a few ducks around the little farm pond. All of the ducks and geese here are wild waterfowl. I do not feed the waterfowl at all, at least not intentionally. There is a pair of very bright Mallard Ducks that has figured out that tasty little morsels of bird seed fall from the feeder whenever birds perch there. When the feeder tips a bit, seeds fall to the ground and boy to those ducks enjoy it! So the pair of Mallards can sometimes be seen waddling up to the house area from the pond. It is slightly comical.
The other ducks here are a small flock of Wood Ducks, and the lone female Ring-Necked Duck that has lived here for several months. The Mallards and the Wood Ducks live around here all year-long but the Ring-Necked Duck should be a migrant visitor. We will see. I took these pictures on May 4, 2012 and again on May 6, 2012 in my yard. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
