Ducks Я Us

Yesterday, I was awakened by a loud banging sound coming from our roof. I figured that maybe Santa was paying an early visit this year (yes, I've been SO good), but before I could even get out of bed, I heard a commotion coming from our backyard. Looking out the back door, I saw fourteen (yes, 14), ducks fighting and eating from our feeders. That banging I heard on our roof, were the ducks landing and then taking off to finally land in our backyard.

We usually have only four to six, all pairs, feeding from our yard, so this mass invasion came as something of a shock. My wife tried to get some good photos, but with our POS camera, these are the best she could do. Unfortunately, the ducks flat-out refused to stay still for this photo-op...

  1. Koko and Yum-Yum have the bestest Bird TV ever!

  2. BeadedTail: Oh yeah, they went ballistic watching them. Oh, and they came back this afternoon...about 18 of them.
    Have a great weekend!

  3. Santa is using ducks now? Well if you run short of turkey on Thursday you've got plenty of ducks who could fill in :)
    That must have been crazy, I can only imagine what Koko and Yum Yum thought of all that

  4. Wow- I've never had ducks in my yard!

  5. Ann: I was actually thinking the same thing :)
    Koko and Yum Yum were going nuts watching them all. They were chattering about as much as the ducks were.

    Sharkbytes (TM): You are more than welcome to some of ours ;-)
    We usually only had 4 coming around and then all of a sudden this flock shows up. I wonder how they found out about us...do ducks have cell phones :)
