Ducks on the Roof...Crows in the Birdbath...Bunnies in the Flowerbeds

This morning around 6:30 AM I grabbed a cup of coffee and went out to my screened porch and opened the windows for some delicious cool fresh air. I was still somewhat asleep and overhead heard some thumping noises. My cat was staring at the ceiling and then I saw two mallard ducks jump off the roof and fly down to the lake. Our roof has a low pitch and I guess they thought it was safer there than on the shore with Mr. Fox. These were two drake mallards the females take their chances on the lake with their ducklings. No such thing as chivalry in duckdom.

A short time later four crows showed up and decided to take turns in the birdbath. They were having a great old noisy time. By the time they were done the bird bath was empty. They then decided they should play on our patio table and started dissecting my poor Easter cactus I had put out for some sun. They finally stopped after my husband put out more bird food in the feeder. I guess they were trying to get our attention!

The cutest thing that happened today though was when our resident bunny decided he would let me take his picture. I was able to get pretty close and got a few really cute pictures. Sometime soon I will get back to crafting and hunting down more vintage finds, but who can resist when all of this is going on in your back yard!
