Ducks!!



So tonight while eating supper I am looking out my kitchen window and notice something moving in my neighbors bushes across the street from us. It was a momma Wood Duck and her babies!! I watch them for awhile while I am cleaning up the dishes and notice she is heading toward the street!! I just prayed that no cars were coming as they made it across the street, directly to my yard! I quickly grab my camera which just so happens to be on the kitchen counter and snap 2 pictures of them as they come up to the bushes in my front yard. Then my cameras batteries die. I am lucky I got those 2 pictures before they go into the bushes. I think I counted 14 baby chicks from what I can tell from the pictures. They were so cute!!!! That really made my day that I got pictures of them. Never seen a Wood Duck around here before. I've seen Mallards but never a Wood Duck. I looked up on the internet about the ducks and the male Wood Duck is gorgeous! Lots of different colors.
