I love your pond showcase! Great job!I'm jealous.
I haven't had ducks at all this year. This is the first time in over a decade - even before I had a pond - that ducks haven't been seen in my or my neighbors yards. They nested here in 2016 and 2017, but hardly visited at all last year. No sign of them at all this year.
Coincidentally, I was visiting my grandma yesterday and found a duck nest in her yard! It had about 8 eggs so far. She was surprised to hear that.
Beautiful!I glanced out at the pond this morning and saw a bit of commotion as these two landed. What fun! They swam around a bit and then made a big kerfuffle and took off.
(I can't believe I'm showing you guys my pond before I've done any housekeeping! It's like I invited you in my house and didn't bother to straighten up! haha! WE'VE HAD A VERY SLOW START TO SPRING!)

Omigosh I forgot about the turkeys - every year we get a couple dozen youngsters coming through the neighborhood, getting stuck behind fences and open gates (they are seriously the dumbest birds...) I expect we'll get them stopping at the pond this year as they walk through. I expect it to be a lively place once finished (I'll post pictures of the finished pond).We had ducks and turkeys yesterday morning. They should come back if you work on your pond. Keep putting out the scratch grains, they will come back. Some days my wife and I will both be out having a fire with both dogs and they still land. Looking forward to pics of the finished product.
