The Duck Family

We came across this mother duck trying to find a way through the fence to the pond beyond it. She was obviously trying to get her babies away from a heavy traffic area - people I mean - and we stopped for a while to make sure she succeeded getting through the fence. We stayed far enough away as not to crowd her and watched a mother's protective instincts take charge.

No luck on that side of the fence so she turned around and went to the other end.

These short videos, though not that good, will show the adventures of a Mother Duck in teaching her babies a thing or two.

Clever Mother Duck!
