New Peeps in Da 'Hood

The ducks, de' bin gettin' busy!

We met a new family at community pool Tuesday.

And they got them some prime real estate.
Water front property. On a peninsula, I had to get my feet wet to take these photos.

It's been virtually a ghost town around here, since the water isn't heated.
Looks like she was keeping warm with some big daddy.
I hope those babes hatch soon, 'cause the neighborhood is going to pot as soon as the water warms up.


Whoa Nelly! She must have been on fertility drugs, there are 10 eggs in that nest!
She's gonna be one busy momma.

Well, looky, who showed up.
No dead beat dad here.
Man the pool really is going to the birds!

Sometimes they nest near our neigbhor's pool. Then we get them walking 'round the cul-de-sac. It's too cute.

We don't have many new birds to look at - well, we probably do, but they're so high up in the pine trees we can't see them. But MAN the baby fox are out in full bloom already! They're so friggin' cute runnin' around . . . and driving my dog crazy! I can't wait until our outdoor pool opens for the season . . . fun fun fun!

Star, yeppers our pool, in that little inlet of plants in the center, on the side closest to the pond.
