Sunning Ducklings

There is a retention pond on the border of Seattle. It was recently reconstructed which chased the red winged blackbirds away. They love cattails which were dredged up.  However, the pond is starting to get back to normal with ducks, crows and other wildlife.

As I cut through the area to the store I saw a sight of spring – ducklings.  If you look on the shore of the pond carefully you will see a duck family sunning itself. Mom and kids are napping while Dad stands guard.

Nap time in the sun was being enjoyed.

Then before my eyes the family woke up and floated away.
