I was walking down at one of our ponds today
and look what I found. Mom and her newly
hatched "butterball" duckling.
They were out for swimming lessons and doing
quite well at that! I tried to get some close ups
but didn't want to scare them . We have an
island in the middle of the pond and each year
they have a nest and the their babies there.
We do not go onto the island until they leave.
I have named it Duck Island and they reward me
with ducklings every year.
SPRING HAS SPRUNG!!!!!!
Sorry the pictures are not the best but they were
so quick , I almost fell in the pond and that would
not have been a pretty picture.
