    Duck & ducklings in our pond!

    We have once more wild ducks & ducklings in our pond!!

    There are a lot of wild ducks here, always from Spring till Autumn.
    During the colder months, they fly south.

    Every year a few couples try to have a nest in our garden.
    This time one duck mom made a nest under a bush, and after laying 13 eggs, she sat on her eggs until they all hatched (sp ??)
    Their first "steps" into the world go to our pond (of course !!)
    One didn't have enough strength to jump on the rocks and get out of the pond; as the mom left with her crew and left the little one behind, Bernard went outside, grabbed the baby duck, and put it down closer to the mom.
    Today, they all came back to swim around. It is so special to look at them from behind the windows!
    I even made several pictures of them. I will try to post them here, but as I don't understand how to do that, I will use attachments.
    Please click and look, the ducks family is so lovely!!
