New duck on the block

White muscovy duck

On the very day that my duck friend Eyebrow passed on a few weeks back, another duck showed up but quickly left.  A few days later, I saw her again .. and now she's becoming a regular on the lake. She actually looks quite a bit like Eyebrow ... but without Eyebrow's crazy Eyebrow or her always sunny disposition. Not that this duck is mean. She's just a little more serious. .

But much like Eyebrow, this duck showed up on her own and seems to need a place to fit in and hang out.  At first, one of the ducks chased her off and she didn't return for awhile. But she seems to be working her way into the group ... a little at a time. Each time she arrives she stays a bit longer.
