Weekend malaise: part 2a

May 27, 2012 • 4:25 am

The world seems ugly and sad today, and the Squidly One is dissing cats at his website with a video so dire that I can’t even link to it.

What do we need to combat this misery? BABY ANIMALS!  Here are a passel of ducklings that I filmed this morning on Botany Pond, right outside my office.  Note that they’re the same brood that I filmed earlier.  All seven are still alive, and their down is being replaced by feathers. With Ceiling Cat’s will, they might actually fledge this year.

  1. You are ‘out of sorts’ JAC? A walk or a swim followed by a few hours in the world of P. G. Wodehouse usually put me together again.

    Good luck sir. Fine site you have here.

  2. Is ‘passel’ the correct term for a group of ducklings? Also, a few hours of caving should be just the thing, JAC! I know just the guy to take you, too…

  3. I read a comment on Pharyngula that the Squidly One was tortured with cat pictures during the AAI meeting in Cologne.
