The rice paddy with the reflection of the mountains in it.
The rice paddy with the duck house and inner sanctum.
Here they are!
Up close and personal. They are about three times the size they were when we got them. Still all baby fluff with just their tail feathers finally coming in. They are adorable and today I heard the first non-peep sound. It wasn't quite a proper quack but it was definitely more quack than peep. Pwack maybe?
We still haven't had a single predator issue (touch every piece of wood in Nagano!) which is a big relief and makes me quite proud of all the work we all put into all those security measures!
