1st hatch of the year

While passing a marsh down the road from my place this morning on the way to work I saw my first hatch of Mallards this spring. About 6-8 ducklings following suzie out from the cattails @ 7:15am. Made my day! Hopefully it will be the first of many in the next month to come. I've already seen a few vandalised nests but, hopefully the hens will try another crack at nesting yet. The Drake Mallards and Woodys are still 'Hot -n- bothered' by the hens yet in the area.

 

Anyone else seen anything?

The malllard action is still hopping in the tip of the mit michigan. I was out Turkey hunting on Sunday and two drakes were dogging a hen. Put on a nice show and I practiced my follow through as they cruised on by. I have seen a lot of geese. Our water is up from last year,hope it holds. Speaking of vandalised nest, I would like every domestic cat owner to think seriously about the wildlife damage their pets cause in the Spring. Leave the cat in.
