Ducks by the Lake

Muscovy duck in the shade.
Mallards, I believe.


  1. They definitely look right at home.

  2. We don't see muscovys here, but mallards are common. Some even stay over the winter, as long as there's open water.

  3. You may already know how much I love green, watery scenery! And ducks too. I remember the first Muscovy Duck we ever saw. We were in Seattle with our grandson about 8 (he's 18 now) and we were all entranced with this crazy looking duck; we went home and looked it up on our computer -- google was kind of a new thing at least to us back then and so we all learned something!
