8 quite small ducklings . The photo shows the female, but the male was bringing up the rear with a lagging duckling.
Australian Wood Ducks are seen on grass probably more often than in water.
A male taking advantage of a park bench!
The duckling has grown a lot in just over two weeks (See top photo).
For the second week in a row, I've seen this male with small ducklings and no sign of a female.
Apparently they nest in tree hollows, and all the birds seen on 12.10.2016 were standing near hollows.
