Ducks

Mallard ducks visit my yard every year. I enjoy seeing them.

I think so, because there is a pond on the property.

about a month ago, i saw a wild turkey in my yard. By the time i got the camera, the turkey had disappeared. Im just glad my kids and wife saw it, because i would have thought i was crazy. I live in a residential area, fenced in yard, about 1/2 acre. I didnt think a turkey would be interested in my property unless it was someones pet who got lost or maybe someones dinner that escaped ( and being a vegetarian, knew it was safe on my property :P )

When I used to live in the city there was a school field across from me. Every year there would be a huge puddle formed after the winter melt and spring rains. Every year, there were two Mallards swimming around in their pseudo pond...... pond dried up, off they went. Now I'm in the country and sometimes have that happen in the corner of my yard, but they seem smart enough to know there is a real pond nearby and only stay long enough to rest.
It's always nice to see wildlife.
