these are green winged teal ducks that just hatched. :) I knew that there was a pair mating in our back yard earlier in the summer, but I thought a big dog got to them and ate them. It was nice to see that the family is still alive. They got pretty territorial over the drainage ditch area. Started resting near the area that I am trying to build a retaining wall.
Backyard continues to be a work in progress. But the birds love all the trees and bugs. We are trying to make the back yard as natural as possible, but with enough room for the kids to play. Most of this area will be covered with dirt soon. We have already had two loads of dirt delivered this year.
