Wild Bird Wednesday

Wild Bird Wednesday # 47
Link to Paying Ready Attention ...

Imagine my thrill yesterday when I looked out my window to find that Mrs. Mallard had arrived with 10 little Mallards ...


 

 
 
The heroic part of this story is the huge hill and stairs these little guys have to climb and descend to make this  visit to my tree ...
 
 
 
 
 
 
And off they go ... hopefully the first of many visits to the duckie food tree ...

  1. Oh Andrea, these are so precious. I am never at the park at the right time to see the baby ducks. I think maybe today Pogo and I will take a ride to the park to see if there are any new little ones.

    This is one of the reasons that I have always wanted to live on a pond. You are privileged to see so many different birds and sometimes wildlife.

    You have a wonderful day. Hugs, Edna B.

  13. Ooooh. Hooray for Mrs Mallard and her huge (and very cute family) and to you for bringing them to us.
    She must be an exceptional parent (or the season is really good, or both) to raise a brood that large.
