Q is for Quack............
Back a couple of weeks, when we were on letter "O", I asked for help in identifying a duck that had been around the lake for a couple of weeks.
Jean, over at The Joy of Bird Watching and Living a Simple Life left a comment to let me know that it was a Muscovy Duck. Many thanks, Jean!
Well, two weeks later, she is still hanging around.
Today she had a pair of Mallard ducks with her, and they all seemed to get along pretty well.
Sad to say though, this is the second pair of mallards that we have seen with her.
We were hoping when the first set was there a week and a half ago, that when they left, she would go with them.
This is a new set, and we have the same hope this time.
The Mallards are smaller than her, and they are constantly quacking to each other in a low voice as they glide across the water.
I have never heard the Muscovy quack, but I am sure she must.
Perhaps being alone, she has no one to talk to.
My fingers are crossed that her new friends "talk" her into going with them when they head out for their winter home.
