Baby Ducks!

A couple of weeks ago we mentioned the pair of ducks who have arrived on our lawn. Shortly thereafter, they disappeared for awhile, only to reappear with their new family!

At right, Mrs. Duck instructs the little ones to beware of nuns who toss pieces of bread at them.

Below, the ducklings wait by the P Street wall while Mrs. Duck takes a moment to scold the sisters for getting to close to her precious little ones. (We got the message, loudly and clearly!)

Although he was not out for a walk with the little critters, we caught a picture of the proud father. We promise not to bore our readers with too many duck photos, but these were too cute not to share.
