Another day at the Ditch. And look what we found!
The Duckle family. There may be two Duckle families. I suppose it's like Smith and Jones. Lots of them in the city directory. When I first encountered this family, they were having breakfast.
Then a swimming lesson. Mom's a good teach and she keeps her eye on them.
But all that swimming can wear a duck out! So, time to chill.
I love how these babies bunch close together, even though the weather was in the 80s during this visit.
It's quite the flock and helps make up for the goslings who have since departed to grassier areas (aka the golf course, which I'm sure is a big hit with the golfers.
A first they were several feet from Mama Duck, content to be in their clump.
But a loud noise sent them scurrying closer to mom. All was well.
We'll be seeing this family again.
So till then, keep cool!
