Spring truly is here. Our pair of Australian Wood Ducks brought their twelve young ducklings down to the dam for a swim.  This was our first glimpse of the new brood.  I’m sure in the months to come, we’ll get many more photo opportunities, so I’ll just start with this one photo.

Twelve Ducklings with two adult Australian Wood Duck.
The male Australian Wood Duck is the one with the dark brown head, at the back of the group. The female is sitting at the front, looking straight into the camera – obviously being very vigilant.
