Some of our local residents don’t really mind that it rains here 8-9 months out of the year. My personal flock of Mallard ducks stay in our apartment complex year round. We get to see new additions in May and watch them grow to adulthood. Everyone feeds them so they are more pets than wild birds. If you’re in the back yard where we have 3 large ponds they will see you coming. If you even remotely look like you could be packing food they fly, swim & run at you en-mass. It’s a funny sight if you’re a visitor to the complex.
