The dabbling ducks are pairing up.

I do hope wigeons are more romantic than their cousins the mallards. A writeup I read a couple years ago in the NYTimes about their mating habits left me kind of cold.

What about the diving ducks? We saw lots of both today on a bird-related expedition with the 1st grade set. Wigeons, Mallards, Goldeneyes, Buffleheads, Mergansers (Common and Hooded), and more. Fun time to be looking at their behavior!

"The dabbling ducks are pairing up, parlez vous" - makes me want to sing!
It's comforting to know that spring is in the air SOMEWHERE! ~ks
