Tick Patrol reporting for duty!


5 black and white Magpie ducks ready to hunt bugs!

One of the draws for me to Magpie Ducks is their known foraging tendencies.  They’ll eat just about any bug they can get their beaks on.  Last year I watched one of them crunch an entire live cicada.  And those buggers are HUGE!

This morning within 10 seconds of being let out, they were on the hunt.  Ticks don’t stand a chance!
