Mottled Mother of the Year Award!
We have been watching eight Mottled ducklings grow this past month or so and would have to say this Mom has done well!
I was able to snap a quick shot before they hid in the bushes and happy to see all eight are still around. Typically the Gar, Bass or birds will have a few eaten by now and have always wantched them dwindle to one or two. We even have Coyotes in downtown PBG and plenty of cats that I'm sure have given them an eyeball or two.
So hats off to this Momma👏👏👏
