Five guys, no girls

This morning finds five male ducks drinking from the pond in the quad, but no sign of any females. Perhaps word has got out in duck circles that the quad is a magnet for annually returning females? Or perhaps some of these males were raised in the quad in previous years? Anyway, if this year follows last year's pattern, we should have some (doomed) chicks in the quad within the next couple of weeks.
