    They are lovely,

    never mind the feed bill.

    I have been staying at my uncles place recently as he had passed away at christmas. I was there to arrange his funeral, and just about 20 yeards from his mobile home there is a large lake where he enjoyed fishing in the season. There are so many birds on this lake, I will post a pic later.

    there are Canada Geese and mallards and lots more. On the morning of his funeral for the first time I saw some birds out of the water, there was a line of one ofeach watching as the cars passed by. It was beautiful, wehad a good sunny day and it seemed like they were saying goodbye to an old friend.

    Jena.

    Your ducks are beautiful!

    I have a couple of Holderreads ducks and they originally came from Eggchel.

    It is a great place...

    Miss Prissy would love the lake...

    My uncle was 90 and he lived here for the past 30 years, so he was very happy there. It was just so nice to see the birds as we left here.

    I was glad to be there for his last journey.

    Jena.

    Miss Prissy, they look amazing never mind the season, they look very healthy. Love the Mutts too.
