The Lone Ducky

The mallard ducks are usually more abundant in Park Cemetery this time of year. Last year, there was a pair at this particular pond, even though it was still iced over. But this male was the only duck we spotted at any of the cemetery's ponds today.

No sign of the Canada geese yet either.

Lovely photo. Maybe a mate will turn up for him.

@Sarala: Probably. There will be a lot of ducks soon, I'm sure.
