Ducks of Scarberia

Ducks encroach, originally uploaded by squiddity of toronto.

I trekked out to Scarborough to visit my dad yesterday, got off the 54 Lawrence bus a couple of stops early (it turned off Lawrence and I didn't know where it was going), and walked through what my map tells me was the Curran Hill Ravine. Houses back onto it on either side, and a creek runs through it. The creek is home to a large flock of ducks who are obviously accustomed to getting snacks from their human neighbours. I stopped walking to take a couple of photos, and as soon as the ducks noticed this they all came flapping and waddling over to sit in the snow around me & eye me beadily.

It was so cold my hands hurt after a couple of minutes without my mittens, so I had to stop taking photos. Immune to the cold, the ducks paddled happily among floating chunks of ice. Look how many there were!
