Can't Stop Touching Her Eyes
Join Date: May 2006
Oh that is terrible! I know I would not be able to stand by and watch those males do that! They better not harass her anymore. I am not afraid of them! Okay, maybe a little afraid but that goes back to a nasty white duck in my childhood that used to go after me. It was a neighbors pet duck and hated little kids. Nasty Daisy duck!
Yesterday, though, I had a funny thing happen. When we were eating dinner our female (or so I thought) came back and was washing up in the pond. I thought it was odd that she was in the pond so long b/c typically our turtle would harrass her until she got out and sat in the stream. I figured since she may be sitting on eggs I'd better get her dinner out. I feed them in a flower bed on the side of our house. I went out the front door to the side of our house with her food and she was already there! I thought she just beat me out front. She did her normal thing. She walked a couple of steps away while I put the food out but didn't leave. I went back in the house to finish my dinner and saw that there was still a female out back! That is when I realized that the female in the pond was really big. I guess that the other pair of ducks that were hanging around the neighborhood finally found our yard. The other larger female is welcome as long as she doesn't pick on our little girl! I think the second male Sunday morning was the larger females mate. I will not hestitate to sick my turtle on him if he bugs my little girl again. He will not be welcome if he cannot behave himself!
I do hope that our pair have babies this year. And if not I hope that they return next year! I just love seeing them out back. I wish her nest was where I could help keep an eye on it. I have no idea where she goes when she leaves our property.
