Spring has Sprung.

I love spring. It means fledglings, baby animals and ducklings, wading in our billabong. Here's our local wood ducks that we named Bonnie and Clyde because they regularly raid our veggie patch.

Last year they had five ducklings, but only one survived. Unfortunately, the others must have been taken by foxes or raptors, so this year, I bought some duckling food from the pet shop. I’m so glad I did because Bonnie and Clyde had seven babies this year. Here's a picture of the beautiful little things, plus a video. Just click to watch the movie.

  1. That's exactly how I talk to my cats, Trish.

  2. Heehee, I talk to all animals that way. I love litle critters.

    How many cats do you have, Jayde. I'd love a cat. My son has one, and he's such a character.

  3. Hi Chrissy. Thanks for visiting. I have such a dorky voice. When I hear it, I can never believe I sound like that.

    The ducklings are growing so fast. It must be because I feed them so much.
