A few year's ago a Mallard duck made a nest in in a whiskey barrel in my wife's Parent's back yard in Fort Collins.  The really cool thing is that the ducklings were born on Mother's Day...And they were cute!

They stayed for a few days until the Mother thought the babies were ready for the journey to a local stream to meet up with the Daddy. We sure enjoyed them while they nested in the whiskey barrel. However, that was the last time we would have have a duck family in the back yard.  Mom and Dad still return every year, but some foxes in the neighborhood have prevented them from raising a family.

Thanks to my wife Jenny for taking all of the photos.
