Paradise Mother Duck with Ducklings

I’m now back from my travels (have been in London for the three weeks).  It’s funny going from the beginning of Autumn to early Spring! So I got quite a pleasant surprise when I came across these young ducklings with their Mum (Dad was hanging back). It’s really easy to get up close to the ducks as they are not that wary of people and I suspect they get very well fed. Paradise ducks are endemic to New Zealand – find out more about then at http://www.nzbirds.com/birds/putangi.html

A big thanks to Steve for taking care of the blog while I was away.

    What an interesting commentary on the ducks. Unique indeed and a very good close up of the Mum and babes.

    oh, those baby ducks are just beautiful and so tiny. The mother duck has some gorgeous colors.
