I saw Ms. Mallory tonight. I know it's amazing that I can tell her apart from all the other ducks in the pond... but I can. She's loud. She's bitchy. She complains A LOT! And she's smaller than the other she-males. I feel I know her as well as I know Mabel!
She was complaining and fussing and I walked through the shrubs to see her. The closer I got, the louder she got. Just as I got my camera out, she took flight! All red arrows point to her and her thrashing wings!
I'm happy my girl has decided the pond is a nice place to live. My pool still hasn't recovered from the last round of babies two summer ago!
