Ducklings!!

Chester and I found a Mallard Duck with her ducklings on yesterday’s walk along the Red River.  I hope the Wood ducklings will soon be seen also.  🙂

She has 7 adorable babies and I have pictures.  🙂

Chester wasn’t particularly interested in them – they didn’t make any noise to attract him (although bunnies don’t make any noise either) and they didn’t fly (again – bunnies don’t fly either).  He is really only attracted to the critters on the river side of our walk if they make noise or fly – on the other side of the walkway, critters walking also attract him or just the shape of the bunny – sometimes rocks or twigs in the general shape of a bunny also attract him.  🙂

So far on Africam today, we have seen Elephant, Kudu, Fork-tailed Drongo, Giraffe, Warthog, Impala, Waterbuck, Wildebeest, Nyala, African Crowned Eagle, Cape Turtle Doves, Blacksmith Lapwing, Egyptian Geese, Duiker and our beautiful Cheetah Salome with her 3 cubs.  Click here to see all of the pictures from June 5th.
