Make Way for the Wood Ducklings Part 2
It was hard to tell exactly how many duckling were in the box but all seven ventured out. A few of the ducklings were photoed on their jump to the ground. I will know next time if I hold the button down I can take a burst of photos. I did not see the female duck on the ground but she was calling them down. On the cam earlier she could hardly keep them from climbing and quiet. I think I delayed the process by being too close for her to feel comfortable. The last duckling took longer than all the rest of his nest mates. He seemed to be trying to decide if it was worth it. His buddies were all peeping him encouragement.
