Urban Wildlife

 

Living in the suburbs most of my life has means most of my interactions with wild animals have been of the “Holy Crap!  Thats a _____ in my yard!” variety.  This is a different situation.

I’ve been seeing a duck in my yard for the last few weeks.  This is odd because of the amount of cats running around (including a small herd that have colonized a dumpster at a local restaurant.  I call them “The Garbage Pail Kitties”), the proximity to the local high school, and the lack of a body of water that isn’t a stream that dries up by June.

Turns out this little water fowl has ducklings in her care.  My brother saw the whole lot of them when he came over, but while I was out she was sitting on them to keep them safe.
