Ducks and Ducklings

We've been watching for baby ducks and geese by the lake. Finally, a large group of ducklings has appeared! 

I didn't notice until I got the second photo ready to post that daddy duck is watching from the upper left! Ducks are excellent parents.

I haven't seen any babies with the muscovies this year. They are interesting ducks.

  1. Your photos sure do make me smile. Adorable shots. I would be interested in seeing the Muscovy ducklings. I have seen the adults but not their young. I haven't seen any babies here yet but I haven't really gone too far lately. I am enjoying being back home.

  2. Awwww - those baby ducks are adorable.

  3. Hello Linda!:) Ha ha!! how cute to see them crossing the road! We have baby Muscovy ducklings on the farm, they are all adorable.

  4. Very cute! I haven't seen any ducklings yet, but you tend to see them here later in the summer. I have seen goslings with their parents.

  5. Saw two groups of geese by the road with young. one parent in each group stood watch while the others ate.

  6. Those photos of mama duck and babies are adorable!

  7. Aw, t he little ones are so cute. I saw a mama goose and some baby geese crossing the road a couple of days ago.

  8. What lovely photographs.
    So sweet.

    All the best Jan
