And Then There Was One.

There are fools born everyday and there are reports for those fools not to become fools.  These two siblings were dropped off in the pond next to us.  They are as big as the Mallard babies which are approximately 10 weeks old.  The Mallards are close to starting to try out their wings, just haven't grown the long tip feathers.  These two, however, are far from that.  The wings are not more than 2 inches long.  

Someone bought then thinking their kids would like them.  Not one thought of how to raise them and get them ready for the real world was ever used.  This morning we can find only one.  It is calling out constantly for its sibling.  There are other ducks in the pond, Mallards, but they don't have anything to do with them.  If anything, these white ducks are afraid of them.  

I call the one in the back the Fonz because of his duck tail (DA).  Looks like he's saying "DAD?"

This is the only one left.  Whatever got its sibling did a good cleanup because there are no feathers.  Maybe on of the local hawks.
