The other day my six-year-old daughter told me that she saw a new type of duck in the lake behind our yard. She described it as medium-sized and light gold in color. She was convinced that it was a bird we hadn’t seen before. I asked her a few questions about it, but of course we had no idea what it was. Today we came home to discover a pair of Mottled Ducks poking around in our back yard.
“Daddy!” My daughter exclaimed, “Those are the ducks I was telling you about.”
