Yesterday afternoon we had an unexpected sighting of tiny ducklings out with their parents. We almost missed seeing them; they were camouflaged perfectly by the tall bushes and sun’s glare on the water. These little animals turned a reluctant walk into a cheerful one where they insisted we go back today to check on the nesting duck.
Below are pictures of 2 different duck families. First set had 5 ducklings and the second set had 9.
Family of 5: ducklings hanging around mama duck
In this family, it seemed the female duck was the main protector of its ducklings.
Family of 9: most ducklings follow except for 1 or 2 wanderers
Thank you for stopping by and hope the start of May is off to a great start for you! Take care.
