TreeTrunks had quite the conversation with some distant wild mallards this morning. I think my three white mallards figured out they are ducks today. A few hours later the wild ones were sunbathing on the lawn next to our patio. Should I take precautions and view this as a threat? They might just be curious, this has always been their spring hangout ( as I've been told by the neighbors) and maybe they want to see what my white quackers are. Is it likely that they might be diseased? Or try to hurt my little babies? I feel like I need to make sure they are kept separate, or am I being overly protective? You can see my three white babies checking out the wild beauties here. There were about 20 or so all over the complex today in various places.
