Duck Family Claims Pool


[nodp] A duck flew from behind the fence upward to the top of the tallest pine tree. I won't be surprised if we have a duck family swimming in the backyard pool again this year.

Duck Family in Swimming Pool, June 2012

A white wing dove has found refuge within the bounds of Thor's back yard. There may be a nest tucked away into the section of fence that is double sided. The birds screamed a warning while the boxer boy watched over his backyard domain. I spied a young bird hopping through the grass near the back fence. He appeared to be feasting on ants. 

Thor Boxer was curious about the ducks in the pool last year. I doubt he would hurt the ducks or the birds; however, one can not always predict the ways of Mother Nature. Better to be safe than sorry.
