It's Always Ducky in Schroon

With the ice finally out, and the sun doing its best to show its face most days, Spring is finally here. And that's bringing a slew of flora and fauna with it. From the camera of Pat Thorne:

"This pair of mallard ducks welcomed back this weekend.  The male is one of the most easily recognized ducks by its colorful iridescent green-blue head.  The female is a drab mottled brown color.  The mallards are very vocal and call to other birds to come join them.  The female’s common name is Susie quacker and her voice is much louder and higher in pitch.  Enjoy.
