Our neighborhood is nestled between two lakes, and our house lot is right next to a pond...the perfect habitat for ducks. Every year we are thrilled to have a duckling family that we can observe from our backyard. It doesn't take long to establish a relationship with the mama duck and her ducklings. Usually a few handfuls of cheerios and bread will do the trick. This year was no different and within two days of first seeing the ducklings, we had them wandering into our yard in search of food.
