Duck - the ducks are here
There are two groups - Mallards and Mergansers - they have spent winter in the area, visiting the ponds. When it was so cold and most or maybe all ponds were iced over, they hung out in the creeks, the running water didn't freeze, but they do like ponds better - more vegetation and creatures to dive for.
Caught them this morning, had to crop the picture much, but thought you's like it anyway.
Soon they will head for their breeding grounds and their summer homes.
