Ghosts, Goblins and Ducks

Ghosts and Goblins from last night’s trick or treating lingered in this morning’s early fog. As we sat enjoying the serene view we could hear the muffled cries of our resident Black Bellied Whistling Ducks as they flew overhead. After circling a couple of times they landed, making faint splish splashing sounds in the misty silence.

Let me digress. Two years ago we had a huge family of Black Bellied Whistling Ducks, thirty-one ducklings to be exact. How would you like to be a parent to that bunch? We watched them grow, learn to feed and finally fly. They made practice take offs and landings, keeping us totally entertained and starting our mornings with laughter.

Well, this morning when the sun broke through the fog there was our family of ducks. They are quite a vocal bunch, you can’t miss their happy chattering. We love the cacophony of sound filling the clear air.

We imagine them as teenagers, bringing all their friends to share our pretty little pond.

We just wanted to share a slice of our day on Senkarik Pond. Our ducks are almost in a row and we are set for a great day. Hope you have a wonderful one as well.
