The Ducklings are Here!

I am totally thrilled to let you know that last night at about 7:30pm. I saw a proud mama Wood Duck at this side of the pond with her three ducklings!  Three or four  ducklings is typical for many Wood Duck pairs to have.  I think these babies are two days old now.  Excuse the fuzzy slightly out of focus photographs.  The light was dim and I was quite a ways from the ducks.  I must have frightened the mother duck as she quickly started with the babies, paddling across the pond.  I hope to get different pictures another day but these ducks are extremely shy and will be more so with the new babies in tow.  I took these pictures last night.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
