My favorite neighborhood duck, Blondie, came cruising by our dock with her babies in late April. A form of mallard, I’ve been seeing her in the neighborhood for several years now and every year she has a big family.
I always run out to the dock to see her family. The babies stopped for a break a few houses down in front of the sea wall.
The next day we had another mallard family come by. Lots of families coming by the dock right now. I can’t resist taking their pictures.
