Due to a hungry mountain lion, we lost all our ducks by the end of 2008. Unfortunately, there was nothing we could do. It was a slow process over the summer and fall. It was quite frustrating. As a result, we didn’t have any ducks through the winter. We decided this was a good thing, […]

Several wild ducks did come by for a good part of the summer, and all got along quite well.And they do breed! But, I do remember one occasion just after the wild ducks came by. They all followed me up the hill from the pond. All of a sudden, a car door slammed and they […]
