Its Ducky Time!

Oh the joys of late spring –

Proud Mama brought her ducklings around to show us yesterday – and stayed all afternoon! The boys and I were swimming for over two hours – and she just swam along with us – so much so – that scooping up a cute little critter was pretty effortless!

Until Shep the neighbor dog came by for a visit with the ducklings.  They weren’t too sure about that! Congratulations Proud Mama Mallard!

    were they little mallards? or something else. mom’s neck looks long in the picture but that just might be because of how she was swimming. VERY cute little duckies 🙂

      Yes, Mallards. We call her goldie. We learned quite a bit about “Domesticated Mallards”. Many of them have variances in colors, White being the most obvious difference. “The Boys” as we like to call the Dad Mallards – hang out together. I’ve heard that they like to make their way around all of the Mallard Mommie’s nests as well. Very interesting to study! The Boys hang out together, the Moms are rarely seen, only with the babies. This momma just appeared yesterday with her clutch of 10 chicks. Crazy.
