Wildlife Wednesday: Mama Trusts Me

Although there have been goslings in our yard many times, we’d never seen ducklings.

That changed a few days ago when a Mama Duck showed up, with her three babies proudly in tow.

Look! Look who I brought for you to meet!

Since I only had whole corn, which the babies couldn’t eat, our neighbor graciously gave me  a small supply of cracked corn. The little ones have been enjoying that (far left).

I made sure to have a low-to-the-ground bird bath close by for them to have fresh water.  I suppose it’s now officially a “duck bath”.


Seeing these little ones make me smile, and knowing that Mama Duck trusts me enough to bring them so close is just a bonus.
