The brown ducks are back

We have 3 brown ducks that visit us daily to be  fed. We have named them Christmas Easter and Thanksgiving  Only joking guys  The neighbors pond is where they normally reside When guests come they will sometimes escort them to their accommodation hoping for some food as a reward{,Customer service is part of their profile}
 We did have a pond on the property wen we bought it but but needed to re locate it which we have yet to get round to They go and sit where the pond used to be a gentle reminder to us to get on with it
Come summer they go off to have their babies which we never see and then come the Autumn they are back
