The large flocks of Mallards that visited my feeder have gone, probably because the bay and the lake are opening up a bit, as things melt. More natural foods are becoming available again. But, I still have one couple coming faithfully every night. Mr. and Mrs. spend quite a bit of time gathering up the bits of corn and sunflower seeds that the small birds and the squirrels have left.
Tonight, I looked out of my window and got a bit of a laugh. Mallards are, after all, water birds, and it seems that Mr. and Mrs. were making the most of the small puddle that had formed in the bird feeding area.
