There are just five babies now. Since two of them are visibly larger, I’m guessing the two that are gone were probably late hatchings and were easy to pick up by predators.
They were all hanging around the nest today, which made it easier to get closer photos, and I managed to actually get my phone to focus right today.
One of the adults was picking up twigs and other debris to add to the nest – I guess the squatting ducks pushed everything out of place.
But the two bigger babies are happily swimming around and causing trouble.
