The Babies on our Block

The first official duck babies of spring have arrived - and boy, are there a lot of them!

By our count, this proud mama duck has TWENTY babies! They're at least a few days old, judging by their size, so she's been doing a very good job protecting them from the predators that ravaged last year's baby ducks.

We'll keep you posted on their progress!

  1. Oh, how cute! But, 20 babies? How does she do it? I'll be interested to see how they grow. You are very lucky to have such wildflife right in the backyard.
