Saw these little guys on the other side of the fence. There’s a pond in my neighborhood that is fenced in. The baby muscovy ducks were taking a nap recently when I drove by. I pulled over and snapped a few pictures.
This was another family napping along the pond. They were a little older than the previous family. They were also muscovy ducks.
Taken with my phone, 3 times recently I’ve had to stop and let one of the families cross the road on my way to work. This time they plopped down on the road and did not want to move. The car behind me honked and then went around. They eventually got up and headed on to the grass.
An even older family. These babies are starting to show their muscovy colors.
The 7 babies still stay close to mom (on the right). I’ve been seeing them every morning for weeks now hanging out along the way out of my neighborhoods.
Three late duck families in my neighborhood in early August. It will be interesting to see if they stay in the area long term.
