That nice Canadian couple down by the pond has been really quiet lately. Now we all know - they had quadruplets!
There's a little chunk of protected wetland down between the Sherrie's restaurant and the expressway that is just swarming with critters. Ducks, geese, nutria and song birds come begging in the parking lot.
The parents are very protective, but used to the presence of people. when I got too close, and didn't toss food, they bustled the babies off to the safety of the bushes.
And on the other side of the bushes, they feel even safer so I could get slower. Look at those downy babies! It is certainly spring now.
