Ducky was the last wild duckling to hatch at the lake, so he was pretty easy to identify whenever I saw him because he was the youngest looking and usually the fuzziest. I called him the "lost" duckling for a while because because after seeing him for almost two weeks, he disappeared. He reappeared in another part of the lake a few weeks later with his little fuzzy behind and without his mama. Ducky began hanging around a group of three ducklings that were only two weeks older than him. He and the male liked to hang around the picnic tables, hoping people would have food. He would station himself around the area and I would always know where to find him. Here's a video of him and his friend wandering around the picnic table area: Sorry, I don't really have a video camera, I was using a snapshot camera that had video capabilities. Now, he's about thirteen or fourteen weeks old and he's disappeared! His friends are still in the same area, but I can't find him. This is a total turn-around in behavior for him, at least for the last month or two. Do you think he might be getting those male hormones and have started to travel around looking for girls in other places? I am not at my home computer, I will post more photos of him later, including his tiny baby pictures.
