The Ugly Duck Relocation Committee
Many of our housing areas (which we call subdivisions here) have retention ponds. New home builders like to refer to them as lakes, (getting more money for a Lake Front property). We have a lake in our subdivision, but I believe it really is a natural lake. Our lake, sports a nice size population of ducks. Fun to watch and the kids get a kick out of feeding them. A number of people suggested....not saying they did it...that we round up all of the Muscovy Ducks and relocate them. Why you ask.?..Well, for no other reason than: they are ugly.
This fellow, by the way, was photographed a few miles away from here...I've thought about this long and hard...and have come to the conclusion that I need to rethink going out to the curb, to check my mail , in my tattered green robe with pink rollers in my hair...
