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.


  1. Aaaawwwww, so cute! What a mess of little chicks!

  2. Too, too fun! Wish my kids had been that easy to keep in line.

    P.S. Gotcha added to my blog list too.

  3. Oh wow, what a beautiful site & how nice that got to capture it!~~Pam
