Soon we will fly…

Remember the Mallard couple pix I posted? www.flickr.com/photos/napix/5758360962/

 

They had 9 babies born May 18. The mother, which we named Daisy, started to come to our dock twice daily… for food. Now there are only six left and they will start flying very soon. While male and females looks alike until about three month, it looks like this one is a male since his beak is starting to turn yellow.
