I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Deb is a very wise woman 😁
I think your male Mallard is here. Separation? Divorce? He appeared this week on our lake, sometimes hanging with the Tobies, sometimes on his own. The only Mallard around. I’m sure I sent him north to you with his paramour. What happened to him there? Well, after all, it is Pennsylvania. Guess he’s smarter than his lady and decided to get out while the gettin’ was good.
I’ll send him back. Guys alone are so pathetic.
