Make Way for Ducklings

So tonight as we were eating dinner, we noticed that our next-door neighbors were standing in our driveway looking very puzzled. We went outside to learn that there was a mother duck and her ducklings in our carport! Where they came from, I don't know. I also don't know where they were headed. When the mother duck heard us, she took off - feigning an injury so we'd chase her and leave her ducklings alone. We quickly went inside (after snapping this quick shot) and soon mother duck was back. She led her ducklings all across our backyard. I wish we had gotten a picture of that. It was pretty impressive. I don't know how they got out of our back yard - they must have found a hole in the fence big enough to squeeze through. It was definitely something interesting, fun and out of the ordinary at our house!
