Duck Head

Mallard 3

While it’s still duckling season, I’d better show you some of those I’ve seen the past few weeks. Our migratory waterfowl have split for the season and those that remain are year-round residents.

You probably have baby ducks where you are, too, or will soon, but who doesn’t love a baby duck and watching them play?

Okay, that’s enough…

Saved Duck

I thought this little guy above was going to go under. He was all alone and paddling furiously against the current because he didn’t want to be swept under the bridge across the canal. But, in the end, we scared him so that he did go under the bridge and he was happily floating toward his family last time I saw him.

This pretty girl, above, looks different than the other Mallard hens, glistening in the water.

This Neotropic Cormorant caught himself a big one and had a hard time controlling it. I left before the gory ending.

  1. Lovely shots of the ducklings. There are few things cuter!
    We are seeing ducklings and goslings up here now too. Few things are noisier than nesting geese. They seem to honk in shifts 24/7.

  2. Love those babies – we have tons of baby quail in our neighbourhood – so tiny and watched carefully by Mama & Papa.

  3. Candace, those little ones are just adorable!

  4. A good time with the little family !!!
    But I ‘appreciate even more your pictures of fishing Cormoran ! sublime

  5. A very interesting series. I”m glad the little duck managed to get back with its family. Excellent duck shots.

  6. The baby ducks are so cute and fuzzy, amazing images!
