On the same farm as the hen and rooster there were five new Muscovey ducks.  Eagles have lowered that count to two.

C'est l'heure du repas.
Mary MacADNski: Yes, they were fed to bring them near - and I had a long lens on the camera.
out for quackers and cheese.
Mary MacADNski: I see them every day and in winter dark coloured cats are easy pickings.
> My fav is the top photo.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, J. They were brought near with food and I had only a long lens so the focus is not great.

A charming picture.
Mary MacADNski: Glad to see some were spared.
Eagles are not the ducks best friend

I like John Prine
Mary MacADNski: Eagles get lots of things (cats) around here. I like JP too.

They are pretty hefty birds for even an eagle to take
Mary MacADNski: They started out as ducklings.
Well found, mon ami!
Mary MacADNski: A friend's farm - I'm always welcome.
Sounds as though the Eagles don't go hungry round your way Mary. It must be great to see Eagles flying about even if they are predators.
Mary MacADNski: You state it exactly, Brian, I do feel that way.

Oh,the bad eagles to lower the lovely, snowwhite ducks!
Mary MacADNski: These ducks grow to be very large and live on insects. They are wonderful ducks for gardeners.

Oh dear! Well, that's the way of the world I'm afraid. I like duck, too.
Mary MacADNski: As the song says.... That's the way that the world goes round.

Mary MacADNski: They get small dogs and many cats around here. My cats are too heavy for them. smile
