...The newest members of the Middlebrook family. We have been keeping the new nest of ducklings on the hush hush so that mama mallard could try to have some peace and quiet despite the mowing, weed whacking, picnickers, and after school gawkers. Anyway, it hasn't been much of a secret, but last night or early this morning at least four eggs hatched. They will all have to be relocated to where there is water, but that may have to wait until the ducklings begin walking. If you can manage, please let them be.
