Tuesday's Tribute - in Photos
This week's tribute is to waterfowl and their babies. This time of year in Idaho we start to see baby ducks and geese. It really is wonderful to go and watch them. It also gets really fun when they begin conducting flight school. I'll try to get photos this year for posting. In the meantime, enjoy these photos...
This was the first family we saw upon arrival at the park - Canadian geese.
T Rex, his friends, and their moms. We had to keep the boys in their strollers to avoid angry waterfowl parents - very sharp beaks. You can see from the photo T Rex spotted the geese.
T Rex saying his new word "geese" - he's been calling anything bird-like "geese".
Mallard duck mother and her nine babies - imagine nine babies - Poor dear!
Wood duck family - very rare to see - they are extremely shy and keep secluded. These are the most lovely ducks in my opinion. They only had one baby - you can see it on the far right in front of the mom's beak.
May giveaway going on now - one entry counted per comment per posting per blog (T Rex Mom Tales or T Rex Tales). Entries are doubled for followers. Giveaway will run through May 29th.
