As some of you may know, ducks are my favorite species of the bird kingdom. Cindi and I heard a familiar sound yesterday morning of Mallard ducks in our back yard announcing the return of fall. They most likely have returned from their nesting grounds in Canada.

Here are some shots of ducks I have taken that I hope to see soon off of Ray Nash Dr. in Gig Harbor…
