Surprise Visitors

This is the latest we've ever seen these visitors around our bird feeders.  This picture was taken this morning.
The river is frozen over now but when it was open - just last week - we had as many as 18 Mallards coming up to clean up under the bird feeders.  They have the Blue Jays to thank for this too.

We don't have any snow on the ground yet so they're still finding good food around here.  Crazy birds - we thought they'd be flying south by now. 

This picture was taken this afternoon.  They seem quite comfortable when they sit down to eat.
