It turns out that the old nest that they have in the actual canal has become their home, now that they don’t have eggs to worry about.
So the other one is the nursery and this is…kindergarten, I guess.
There are four babies, with two swimming around with one of the parents and the other two sitting on the nest.
I like this, because it means better pictures, but also because it means that they’re using that nest and yet not losing babies.
Also, the Mama Duck with her many many ducklings made an appearance.
How she manages that brood, I’ll never know.
