D is for Ducks ... & lots of 'em
Was down at the pond when a pair of momma Mallards paddled by with fifteen baby ducks in tow. These ducklings are doing pretty well. There just used to be onesies and twosies at most, but a group of 15! It's great, except when they try to cross the street, waddling along in single file ... it takes forever.
I hope this means that our efforts to control the feral cat population are paying off. The City is trapping the ferals, spaying/neutering them, and then releasing selected animals back into the areas where they were caught.
