I was out in my yard walking toward the pond when I heard that distinctive Wood Duck whistle and then saw the three ducklings and their mother frantically start paddling away from the shoreline. They quickly paddled across the pond to the safety of the cattail reeds where they hid in the thick reeds and rushes. These are the same family of Wood Ducks that I photographed earlier and have posted about here. I have not seen any drakes around the pond at all in weeks. The ducklings sure have grown a lot in the past month and I was so happy to see them again! I took today’s pictures of the Wood Ducks on June 25, 2012 in my yard.
