At the duck pond

On a fresh water pond in Pauatahanui Forest and Bird Reserve I found these ducks.

Perhaps Huey, Dewey and Louie?
More likely to be some of this season’s ducklings which have survived, just enjoying the pond.

    Very sweet. The other day we saw a family of paradise ducks. The parents had done a remarkable job. They were still looking after 9 children, all almost as big as themselves.
