Ooh, Baby, Baby!

Yep, it's that time of year when my local waterways and tidal marshes abound with fuzzy babies in the form of Mallard and Canada Goose chicks. So to give your "ooh" and "awww" vocal chords a bit of a workout, here is the first of two posts devoted to the babies. This one features the Mallard chicks. My next post will feature the Canada Goose chicks, so stay tuned. Hard to say which are cuter, so you'll have to decide for yourself.

I'm pretty sure I'm cuter than my brothers & sisters.

Hey, stop pushing & shoving! I'm telling Mom!

But I didn't do anything, Mom! They started it!

Nanner, nanner, nanner, you got in trouble!

Now I'm going to show you how I dance.

You put your left foot in . . .

You take your right foot out . . .

And that's how we do the Hokey Pokey!


  1. These are absolutely adorable!!

  2. Looks like you had as much fun photographing the ducklings as they did playing around. Great photos.

  3. So cute.Nothing better than baby ducks or geese.They have to win the prize for cuteness.

  4. So incredibly cute! I'm melting ... Love your wonderful images, Jann!

  5. Awwwww.....I just love these wee fuzzy wuzzies.

  6. Great shots! Love the action, the movement of the water, the reflections... and of course the subjedts.

  7. Awwww! We have a lot of ducklings hatch this year, too. But, very low survival this year. :( I suspect it's because of the blue herons nesting at the lake this year.
