    I took these pics of our neighborhood ducks in the ditch and on the road, and flying away. Please comment and feel free to add pics of your local wild ducks.

    Nice shots!

    I love the wild mallards I see at the lakes. I keep a blog about the killdeers there, but I also include the ducks. Here are some of my favorites:

    You know you're a duck hunter when the first thing you look for when you see pics of ducks are bands! Great shots!

    Quote:Thanks! That first photo was taken a few days ago. There were 11 ducklings then. I only saw 4 yesterday, but there was another female hanging around them and she has been known to steal ducklings from other females. So, I suspect that many of the rest are with her. She knows how to hide them well.

    Down to three ducklings, at least with that mother. [​IMG] Saw 13 more, but a Canada goose attacked them! They were fine, but they ended up settling down right near the goose! I hope they're going to be OK. Didn't have my camera today, but will bring it next time and take pictures of any survivors.
