  • Orphaned ducks

    "These nine ducks have been motherless since they were just little babies," Kasey observes. "At least one of them stepped up and took care of them as they are all grown up now."

  • Puffed up

    "I have noticed that most of the birds puff up when they are sitting. It must make then seem more intimidating."

    "This male cardinal fell for the peanut bait," she notes. "Love this guy."

  • Mother swan

    This is mother swan guides her eight babies. It's the first time they have nested at my neighbors, says Kasey. "They stayed around about two weeks, then walked across my yard to the lake, never to be seen by us again. I choose to think that they all survived, just like the nine little orphaned ducks."
