duck update


here is pip,
looking sharp this evening.

{milling about with potential suitors} 

i am worried, though,
because we have not seen patito
since saturday.

we have had some stormy weather
and nighttime temperatures near freezing,
so it is possible that she has migrated.
the living is very good at this pond, though,
and most of the ducks stay year-round.

sweet patito is so dear to us.
we will watch the skies until she returns,
and so will her sister.

Oh, I hope she is okay too Catie!!! Still amazes me how you can recognize them, but then again, what mama wouldn't know their own children?

I was wondering how you recognize them too! I wonder if Pip misses her. Let us know when you see her. xoxoxo Gretchen

Oh Catie, this has me worried too. Please let us know when she returns.
