Above are five baby ducks following an adult duck into the reeds. The adult is in the reeds to the upper far right.
These two little yellow-headed ducklings were more independent straggling on their own. I hadn't expected to see ducklings at this time of year, thinking it was too late to find baby ducks but I was wrong.
I am not too sure of the species of the adult ducks but I am thinking Gadwell or Pintail?
Above is the adult duck leading the babies into the reeds. notice the sharp tail of it. Pintail?Looking carefully you can see a slight orange colour to the bill of this duck. a Gadwell has orange on its lower bill and below is a closeup of the orange on its bill.
But whatever the species they were they were a welcome delightful sighting as it has been awhile since I have seen ducks! I am connecting today with Eileen at Saturday Critters found at:
Have a wonderful sunny Saturday everyone!
