And then ducks started showing up to feed at our porch and I began to understand what kind of benefit the bird seed provided for us. The ducks are fun to watch. They squabble sometimes, they couple up. I'm pretty sure we have a pair of gay mallards that visits us regularly. Ambrose even caught ducklings visiting one day.

So, even in his absence, I kept up the spreading of the seed. It's a part of the morning routine now. And yesterday, I was rewarded by an entirely new visitor.
At first, I thought it was another goose and I was getting ready to run it off. Then I looked again and saw that this was no goose.
|Is that a goose?|
|That is not a goose!|
|The ducks were not exactly made welcome by the turkey.|
|A shot from outside.|
|A nice profile from between the blinds.|
|You lookin' at me?|
|The ducks did keep their distance.|
|Threat response - not flight.|
|Bye bye birdies!|
