It is with great pleasure the obstetric department of the Courtyard announces the hatching of 8 healthy mallard ducklings on Monday, May 10th. With due apologies to Tom for thinking he must have spiked the fountain with baking soda with advent of all the soda quackers!
The obstetric department has also noticed the Canadian Honkers, not to be out done by their mallard cousins, have 2 gaggles of goslings on the banks of the Sawyer Creek. Way to go!
It has also been reported that several other mallard families have decided to nest amongst the mulch, daffodils, tulips, hyacinths thoughtfully provided by our Evergreen grounds crew.
So Spring Has Sprung!
