We put up this duck house at least 3 years ago and the only two thing I have ever seen in it was a squirrel and a woodpecker.
Tuesday for the first time a pair of Black Bellied Whistling ducks checked out the housing. This couple looks young so they have probably not nested yet.
In years past the ducks have been here daily for months at a time sometimes groups of 8 to 10 would show up.
This couple started showing up about 1 week ago and checking out what we had for breakfast.
Now they are checking out the accommodations and seeing if we have free shampoo and soap.
Life is good and everyday with the wildlife is a new day for pictures.
