First duckling that we have seen this year.
Hubby and I were sitting in the living room and we saw a duck cross the road with a row of duckling behind her. Hubby ran out with the camera to take a photo of the mother duck with her brood. We have a couple of ducks every year in this pond. It is quite remarkable considering we have foxes, cats and our dogs that roam that area. They usually lose a few duckling every year.
The mother duck did not like hubby being so close. She tried to draw him away by faking a wing injury and hopping back across the road away from her chicks. The camera’s battery went dead so we have no pictures of it. Our dogs do not disturb the ducklings, the mother duck is great at hiding her brood.
