For several years, we’ve had a small group (usually six or fewer) of Mallards that we feed. It’s amazing how those little ducks watch for us at the kitchen window, know our vehicles when we come in our driveway, and waddle around to our side of the house if we’re working in the yard.
A few days ago, I glanced out of our living room window to see these two UP ON THE DECK. (They didn’t realize that the unsightly extension cord didn’t make for a pretty photo op.)
Since they were already there when I noticed them, I don’t know if they came up the (three steps) or if they flew up there.
But apparently, I hadn’t been quick enough to provide breakfast that morning. And yes, I remedied that situation quickly.

Well some eating establishments have a drive-up window……..at your house the ducks have a fly-in deck. It worked though – they got their food!!
if they got up on the railing, they’d be observation ducks : )
Love that you caught the male one “talking” 🙂 Looks like you are well on your way to domesticating them!
They know exactly where to find a good, kind-hearted person to provide them a good breakfast!
They sure know the hand that feeds them. Sounds like they have their own schedule to keep and want to help you remember it.
Your yard beauty’s know just where to come..
