Duckling have begun to debut at our favorite pond. We first spied this one on April 13th.
They look so cute with their Mum.
And when she calls,
They come -- skittering across the surface of the pond in record time!
These babies grow fast, though. One week later they stray further from Mum for more time, and they are larger, their necks longer.
Spring is in the air! Soon they will just be the oldest babies on the pond.
