New birds, and the return of the ducks!

Yay! On Saturday when I was doing all that gardening, I heard the "quack quack" of ducks off in the distance. Today I saw lots of them flying back and forth across the sky, scouting out their old swamp and lake haunts to find a place to nest. So the ducks have come back! And I saw a little grey junco, so they've returned too! (they're little birds, about the size of a black-capped chickadee, with dark grey on their backs and a light grey belly). And this morning, there was a brand new bird - we couldn't see him, but his little call was so cheerful - chip chip chip chip brrrrr. Very cute! I hope to get to see him soon! :)
