Yellow rubber duckies in the neighborhood

I spotted this Mom with her babies in the grass along the pond in my neighborhood.


I sat down on the sidewalk and watched them for a while. They were not shy. People in the neighborhood feed the ducks here so they were looking for a handout.

One of the other muscovy ducks kept an eye on me. Maybe the father?  What a distinguished face he has.

Another family on the other side of the pond. This mom has a white face with only 3 babies.

I stumbled on this muscovy duck family at Lake Morton back in late May. They were so cute. They stayed close together and close to Mom. I rarely see all yellow babies so this was a treat.

Near the duck family, hidden in the reeds along the lake, was a family of limpkins. There were 3 babies that were very shy. I couldn’t get them all together. They did not want to stay in one place very long. Mom wanted to take a nap and the babies kept moving around.

A little dose of cuteness for the morning.
