Maddie and Mabel: Winter Ducks

All winter I worry about making sure Maddie and Mabel have warm, dry places to hangout. I shovel out areas, I make them stay in their coop until I believe the temperature is sufficient (usually around 27 degrees F).  I make sure they are tucked in at night before things get frigid.

So what do I see from my window today, both of them snuggled into a snow bank.

Maddie promptly ran away when I went to take a photo, but Mabel was too comfy to care.

Ducks…inscrutable.
