One of the things I love best about my home is that we get to see so many wonderful animals as they move from one area to another, and a few of them stay, like our Red Tail Hawk.
This morning, as Brian and I were enjoying our coffee and looking out the back bay window, we noticed some larger birds making their way through the trees, perching. Except...they looked like ducks. Ducks in trees. Ducks in trees? Yes! Wood Ducks! A single male and probably around 6 females were flitting about, duck stepping across the branches about 40' up in the trees.
And what a beauty he was. We couldn't get a good photo, so I'm going to swipe a few I found on line. I guess they like calm streams and rich woodlands, which describes our backyard. These things makes me so happy.
