We were sitting at the table eating this evening, when my son noticed a duck coming up to the patio. Of course I immediately jumped up from the table to grab my camera. The male mallard was soon joined by not one, but two female mallards.
They were quickly scarfing the sunflower seeds on the patio. Because of the constant motion and near darkness, it was difficult to get clear pictures of them.
The male walked right up to the patio door. I believe if I would have opened it he would have joined us for our evening meal.
It has been a very interesting bird day here at Robin's Nesting Place. I really don't think I could have chosen a more suitable blog name.
