No new babies yet, but Mama is definitely sitting on eggs right now.  I counted four, but I’ve been told there might be five.

One of the teenagers is still hanging around, though – you can just make them out under the bushes on the right.

The other four seem to be on their way to full-grown adulthood, wandering around the canal enjoying life.

I didn’t get a picture of them today.  Instead, I got a great shot of a Mama Duck and her duckling.
