An Odd Duck

It started a few days ago when I stepped outside and noticed a mallard couple sitting on the roof of the barn.Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me.

The next day I was standing in my kitchen, quietly sipping my morning coffee, when a duck flew by, right in front of my window.

Then he flapped by again, and again... and again. He seemed to become agitated, he began to quack loudly. It was disturbing. He was circling my house.

Curious about the drama of it all I peeked outside another window and noticed that his lady friend was sitting in a tree.Despite my window peeking detective work, I was never able to identify the trouble. After a while she quacked a couple of times and they flew away together.

The following morning I was again, sipping coffee in my kitchen, and there was that duck... sitting on the picnic table.I don't know what is going on around here.But that mallard isn't the only odd duck who sits on top of the picnic table.

Please try to forget these images if you ever come to my house for a picnic, okay?
