Sunday ducks

May 16, 2021 • 3:00 pm

Just a few snaps of our resident hens and their broods. Here on “Duck Plaza” are Dorothy (foreground) and Honey (background) with their broods of ten and four, respectively. In a rare moment of amity, they are napping just a few yards apart. Note the critically important duck fence that keeps people from disturbing them.

Dorothy napping but also keeping a weather eye open for her nearby brood:

And Dorothy’s adorable brood of ten in a Duck Pile. They’re napping, and several have their nictitating membranes closed for sleeping, giving the eye a white appearance.

    Let us hope this is the dawn of Honey and Dorothy’s striking a modus vivendi.

  2. Glad we’ve gotten to this point. Pretty harrowing there for a while, the kind of thing that makes you fear the worst…

  3. I’m sure that the paucity of comments here is not an accurate representation of the interest in the ducks of Botany Pond!
