Wilson on outdoors: What to do about ducks in Modesto backyard

Question: We have two mallard ducks that seem to have taken up residency in our backyard pool and laid eggs in the surrounding plants. I am afraid that if they hatch they will end up dead because of all the meat-eating birds in the area. Why are they doing this? If I can get them to leave, where will they fly off to? I can’t seem to find any help in the town that I live in. I read your piece in The Modesto Bee and wondered if you had any suggestions of what I could do? Richard, Modesto
