Momma Duck decided to take the new baby out for it's first tour of the yard and pond. We still don't know the sex. We can't get close enough to pick it up. For the time being, we're calling it B.D. (baby duck).
Right now Momma is keeping B.D. in the shallows where she can keep an eye on him. We've had snapping turtles in our pond over the years and even lost an adult duck to one last summer.
