It's that time of year again ...

Every river has its feathered babies.

On the bank of the Little Campbell River, Semiahmoo Reserve, this mallard led her brood through the grass:

Three little heads

They jumped off the edge, to join Daddy in the river ...

... got themselves organized, and swam off upstream.

With mallards, there's always a straggler.

And on the shores of the Nicomekl River, ten obedient little goslings stayed close to their parents:

Ten babies.

I love those big, floppy feet!

A cutie.

Under the parent's watchful eye.



  1. Hi - it's jean - could you exchange email addresses - not sure if I have ever had yours. Have been wondering how you are.

  2. Hi, Jean. You can e-mail me at susannah *t gmail d*t c*m. (Replace the vowels; I've been getting a bit too much spam recently.)

  3. What great family photos of ducks and geese. Such beautiful creatures.


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
