Those of you following the duck saga will know at the last count we were down to three. Now it's one female we named Dina. The last lone Duck roamed the yard last summer and kept it free of grasshoppers. When she was lonesome, she would hang out on the patio with the cats. She and the new flock of ducks seemed only to tolerate each other. Well, now we are back down to one survivor. She, too, is lonely. Lucky for Dina, we have turkeys who roost in our cottonwood trees at night and hang around the birdfeeder during the day. For now, she has some fowl-weather friends!
My apologies for the dark pictures but it was late in the day and I wanted to catch the birds before they settled in for the night. Hopefully we will hear Dina's quack in the morning.
