Momma Ruddy Duck & Young

This has been a rather sad story to observe. Each day black-crowned night-herons have picked off her babies, one by one. She tries to fight back as aggressively as she can, but the herons are too fast for her. She is no match for them. I was hoping these last two would fare better than the other little ones, but no such luck. They have disappeared from the pond too. :-(

Yes, this can be heartbreaking to watch, Mike. I had a family of wood ducks on my pond. I never did find out what got them, but one by one, they all dissappeared.

Interesting but sad story, Mike. I hadn't known that Night Herons would attack ducklings. Very pretty photo.
