Looking at this photo makes my heart hurt. I took it the day before I left on vacation and it was the first time the Mama duck left the nest with her babies. They were so adorable and she looked so proud! When we returned a couple of days ago, I discovered that none of the babies had survived. The same thing happened last year. Their chances of sticking around long enough to become adults are so slim around here, mostly due to all of the people that walk their dogs along the canal (off leash). The poor baby ducklings don’t have a fighting chance. So sad!
