  10. Many years ago we had a pair of domestic ducks in the back yard--- naturally the food and their little pool attracted freeloaders, so we got to know the mallards quite well--- their various communicating movements, and their habits. Watching the males lose their color always seemed a bit sad....

  17. He's handsome and knows it! I am not sure what eclipse means in this context ... is it the same as molting?

    1. Sallie, you are right, it is molting.
