Our bird feeders have drawn all types of birds over the past few months. Yesterday two Mallards surprised us with their first visit. They did not sit on the feeders but did spend a lot of time in the grass below the feeder in the front yard. There they looked for seeds that had dropped to the ground. Both ducks sat in the grass for a while after they got tired of picking for the seeds then sauntered off to their next stopping place.
