It was a big day for the ducklings in the garden!
1 week ago Mama Duck hatched–11 ducklings.
She has been an incredible Mama Duck, keeping her ducklings happy and hidden in the duck house.
Papa Ducks have been guarding the exterior of the nursery.
As the late afternoon sun was cooling a bit,
Mama Duck brought her family to the big outside world for the first time!
We all settled in and kept a careful eye on our latest additions to the garden.
Kitties lurked about and Papa Ducks alerted the young ones.
When the ducklings finally made their way back to the duck house, I breathed a sign of relief.
Locked in and safe for the night! Can’t wait for day 2 of duckling school.
