It’s been two months since I first saw that tiny duckling during my morning walk to work and since then it’s really grown. There is no longer any wondering whether it’s going to make it. Whatever tricks and strategies the mama duck used to ensure the survival of her offspring worked. This duckling appears to be well on its way to adulthood.
During my lunch break I went outside to check on the ducks and watched as the duckling embark on a solo trek across the water.
It wasn’t long before the mama duck joined in.
We’ll leave these two be and check back with them another time.
