Baby Duckies

This year’s first family of baby ducks showed up in my back yard today.  There were 16 of them, each cuter than the next, frantically trying to keep up with Mommy.

After resting in the shade beneath one of my trees it was back in the water headed wherever duck families go.  They take some time getting organized.

Incidentally,  the screeching birds in both videos recently set up housekeeping in one of my trees.  They do not like anyone in the backyard.  Like the Europeans who settled in the New World they have decided that the tree and surrounding yard are now theirs.  They don’t attack.  They just come as close to me as they feel safe  and tell me in bird talk to beat it!
