About twice a day, the two boys take a short joy-flight. It really amazes me how HIGH and how FAR they can go. They fly so far away, that they look like little sparrows in the sky, except that they have white bibs! After a few minutes of circling our 11 acres, they come back to the girls, who can't fly very well and therefore stay on the ground and call the boys back (thankfully). After they come back and land (none too gracefully), they tell the girls about their travels and then go back to bug catching. We always run out on the deck and watch them show off. Does anyone else's calls take a few daily joy-flights? I think the ducks would probably claim they're excercise flights.
