The Courtyard Pond, Athena High School (3/13/12).
This past Tuesday morning outside my second story classroom window (which opens into the courtyard) a single duck had been barking beside the small artifical pond. As students cut between hallways by going outside, his calls became louder. I had hoped that this was meant to indicate that (as in past years) a gaggle of ducklings would soon be arriving, hatched from eggs hidden in the brush.

Three days later, with no duck (young or old) in site, I regret that there appears no such story to watch unfold this spring... at least thus far.
