I hadn't seen her in a while so I was surprised she came. My son and I were in the family room talking and laughing when I looked out the window to see her.
"It's Momma Duck ," I shouted.
The whole family knows about Momma Duck so Michael immediately looked up to see. She was swimming alone. We think Daddy Duck died in October. She had another male companion for a while but they seemed to be fighting the end of May. After that she left.
She came to the same blue edged spa where her ducklings hopped out of the water to get dry.
She swam in the pool and remembered when she taught her ducklings how to dabble for insects.
