Well, you can’t get any cuter than a baby duck…
unless you see a whole flock of them.
And it was so great to see the Papa and Mama to get a good ID.
They are Wood Ducks and my Florida Identification book says that they nest in tree cavities.
They were moving to this marshy area where they were camofluaged.
Even Papa was hard to see in the tall grasses.
I think this is a Cormorant. But isn’t he the ugliest one you’ve ever seen? I don’t dare crop the photo or zoom in for a closer look. I might lose some readers!
So let’s end this post with the baby Wood Duck family!
And yes, on our hike at the Blue Run Park in Dunnellon, FL. we saw them ‘coming and going’.
