Now that the ducklings have a lot of their feathers, they look more like the pictures in the bird book. We think they're Red Billed Teal. Their beaks are gradually changing from black to pink. We haven't seen any adult Red Billed Teal, but the book does say they are found in this area, so presumably we just haven't noticed them. The ducklings are getting a bit restless now. But I think they'll need to grow a few more feathers before they'll be ready to move on.


  1. Amazing how much they have changed in just a few weeks - and there are so many shades of grey in their feathers. I suppose no two are alike? - it will be sad to see them go.

  2. Gosh they have grown big in such a short time, they look really healthy

  3. They are real grown-ups!
    But still cute:)))
