She's got a veritable navy of ducklings there. Watch out, Schiller Park!

Here's hoping that they all reach adult-duckhood! I feel so sad when I see a bunch of ducklings (a 'paddling' of ducks, according to Wikipedia)gradually dwindling as they are removed by predators...

In the second pic, I'm wondering if the ducklets will learn they can't swim any further against that concrete wall and will either have to turn around or climb out.

Yeah, she's got a plethora, B^4.

Jim H., in the video you can see one baby climb out and run along the edge.

Unless you add some sizzle, such as free curly fries, this newfangled holiday's never going to catch on with the rubes.

ducklings are nature's way of feeding fox cubs etc, so it all works in the circle of life - it's energy going round and round, with a feeling frosting - not so nice sometimes, of course, but the creative forces of the universe must love predators, because they made so many of them
