Days 272 to 278: Duck Pond Fever!

Birds attract more birds. While the northwoods have become rather barren in terms of birds as most of our feathered friends have flown south for the winter, one particular pond near me still is attracting lots of late migrants. Simply put, ducks like to hang out with other ducks. Find your local pond which doubles as a duck convention, and your viewing possibilities are enhanced … duck pond fever. In my local pond’s case, a resident flock of domestic geese and mallards server as the birds that attract their wild counterparts to their waters.
