Wildlife Wednesday:Ducklings

Right now, our yard is full of Canada Geese. It’s definitely been a prolific year for them.  I don’t even try to count how many there are at any given time. My feelings wouldn’t be hurt if they permanently found somewhere else to live.

BUT, we do have two adorable Mallard ducklings.

It’s rare that the ducklings we see in our yard survive.

Neighbors have said that the snapping turtles are probably responsible.

Mama Duck is obviously one that has been frequenting our yard (and enjoying the corn we feed them) for a while. She is comfortable around us and brings the little ones right up to where we are.

Be safe and grow, little ones.
