With spring comes nest building and new life. Here is a baby mallard duckling who got left behind by its mama because, it was one of the last to hatch out. It was soon reunited with its mother and brothers & sisters.
At first it didn't want to follow its mama because it had imprinted on me, as I was the first "mama" it had seen. It didn't take the duckling long to make the right choice though and follow its own mother.
The birds have also been busy with nest building and laying their eggs. Here Cucoo proudly displays his three beautiful blue eggs....a sure sign of spring.
