Almost Summer!

Ducklings!

So our little neighborhood knows summer is just around the corner when the ducklings have hatched.  Every year we have a mother duck that raises her ducklings in the creek near our home.  

Suprisingly none of the neighborhood cats or dogs seem at all interested in doing anything but watching them from the banks of the creek.  Occasionally one of us will take out some stale bread and feed them.  

Enjoy the photos!

Spring has sprung. Yesterday I was driving down Jackson Street when this mother duck and her 4 baby ducklings crossed the street right in front of me. I stopped and let them cross safely. I was surprised that wild duck was running around downtown area that far from any water. But, it was nice to see.
