Jeannette discovers ducklings

JEANNETTE HOLMES found these brand-new ducklings at the Oven [near the Boathouse] on May 31, 2011.

On the same day she photographed a Great Egret showing off at the Lake outside the Boathouse

And a flock of Cedar Waxwings passing berries one to another near The Pond.

You can find all this and more on Jeannette's blog: [She posted the link on eBirds today]

PS That green stuff the ducklings are swimming in is not slime or scum. It is Duckweed, a very nutritious plant made up of hundreds of individual plantlets all floating together.
