For the third year in a row, these two ducks have returned to nest on this nearby pond. In this day of dwindling numbers of marriages, it looks like those in the natural world are putting us to shame again. This is the first time I've driven by the water and seen them both off the nest. If I'm walking out back in early evening, I often see one honking and gliding overhead towards the pond. As if to say, "Honey, I'm home."
