I arrived to this scene at the pond this morning.
Momma duck hissing at this seagull who had just chased her and her 10 baby's up the bank of the pond. He is trying to catch a baby for breakfast, and she was having none of it.
She then herded her brood down to the water.
These guys are just so small. you can see here when the pigeon strolls by.
She is a good momma, two little guys got out of the water, she went to get them, the other eight followed.
she got everyone back in the water...but not for long...
She has her work cut out for her.
Danger is always lurking.
