Mottled Ducklings

The Florida Mottled Ducklings have made their appearance on lovely little Lake Paradise here in The Villages, FL in recent days.  I took these photographs from Schwartz Park last Friday.  These ducks are native here in Florida and are very similar to the Mallard Ducks.

The little ducklings are adorable and are still in a very tight single file formation behind their mother.  As the ducklings grow, they will venture farther away from mother.  I enjoy watching all the baby waterfowl here on our lakes and ponds.  It has been very rainy so it is hit or miss whether or not I can get out to do much bird watching.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!
