WOOD DUCK CHICK

Wood DucK Chick

We’ve seen several paddlings of ducklings in the last few weeks. This duckling was swimming on its own for a while though never far from its mother. The waters are treacherous for these small birds; the lake has a fair number of snapping turtles and the reserve has its share of hawks (although I’ve seen neither this year). I always feel better when I see a duckling rejoin the group.

  3. That is cute! Its head looks slightly bigger in relation to its body compared to the familiar mallard ducklings. It certainly isn’t easy growing up in the wild, but I hope this chick will be one of the survivors.

  5. What a sweet photo, Belinda. Baby bird mortality is a horrible fact of life, though I wish the odds were better for them.

  6. Great capture, Belinda! I’m with you and want to see the chicks stick with mama as the danger is everywhere.
