117/365 - Birdspeak - Are You My Mommy? And a Mallard.

She was hanging out in the Dogwood, the closest tree to our front door where the nest filled with 6 eggs (3 blue, 3 brown speckled) sits. A Daddy bird was there, too.

No peeks into the nest today.

The mallards are back, too. We call the males "Gary", after the mallard duck in "The Pacifier". And since we know a couple, Gary and Sharon, we call the females "Sharon". Yeah, we're weird. They like to swim in our pond and the other waterways in our neighborhood. I liked how the morning sun emphasized his green head and orange feet (somewhat covered by our grass)

That duck shot is awesome! I love the vibrant colors of his feathers. And I love that you named them Gary and Sharon. LOL! Too cute. -Esther www.estherpedersonblog.com
