Sometimes Two and Two Makes Five

What a start to my day. Found 3 mallards stuck in the small pen I built around the tree in my backyard. Built the pen to keep ducks from gobbling down birdseed I put for the small birds. Works great but every once in awhile security is breached and renegade ducks go rampant inside, inhaling all the food in seconds. Lots of fun going round and round the tree to get the mallards out. They kept flying into the chicken wire in their panic. I took off the wire top, and had my old mutt go one way, while I went the other way to steer the ducks to the open end. Almost made me want to have duck soup, but finally each one figured it out. I have now earned my sit-down time in front of my computer searching for lincoln 225 ac welder and I don't care how obscure that topic is. Anything now beats the hell out of going round and round a tree after cornered panicking mallards.
