The new generation of Mallard 🙂
The mother hides them from onlookers like me…
While I was getting ready to take pictures of them, the mother cried out twice and they gathered under her wings.
I stood for about 10 minutes, but she hid them so well that I could barely make a few shots.
I know that there are gray crows in the area that can kidnap young birds.
But this mother keeps her generation very well.
