    a friend of mine has a pair of muscovies with 12 babies in a 1/2 acre pond with an island in the middle. well tuesday afternoon, the ducks were soaking up some sun when a hawk swooped down, obviously after those easy little yellow targets. the big male scovy met him with a bite to the chest and knocked him into the water. the hawk flew off without any supper. surely he'll be back but i bet he's more careful next time.
