New babies are thriving

2 10 2015

I saw the ducks again today — they’ve been ‘missing’ for the past couple of weeks when I’ve driven into town, but they were back today. (see: https://rhondabracey.com/2015/09/15/new-babies/)

Surprisingly, 10 of the 11 babies are still alive, and from the size of them, they are thriving! I didn’t think that many would survive those first few weeks as I thought predators such as snakes, foxes, and raptors, as well as the big killer — the cars on the road that runs right by where they live — would get a few.

The photos were taken from the car so that I didn’t disturb the family.
