STOPS ALONG THE WAY

GROWING UP

More Wooducks

On a hot day last week I took cover in the shade and saw this wood duck family close to shore. The light was perfect and each duck stood out sharply. The chicks looked relaxed, the adult on alert. The young were born sometime in June. They learn to fly at about seven weeks, until then they stick close to their mother.

  6. Those lily pads make it. A duck family in a quiet place. I’m assuming it’s quiet. It looks that way, but maybe there are ducks quacking all around. Who knows.
