Last week these ducks were eggs.
Excuse the blurry action shot. When they aren't sleeping, these youngsters keep pretty busy.
In a few weeks, they'll look like this.
Meanwhile, outside, wild birds are keeping busy too.
Mr. Cardinal announces his dominion over a bit of acreage.
Mr. Robin sings a sprightly love song.
A pair of Grackles argue over who will build the nest.
This guy is simply above it all.
