All in a row

I stopped briefly at a quiet spot in Santa Rosa yesterday.  From the edge of a creek, I first heard and then saw a female Wood Duck (Aix sponsa) with young.

Here's a close-up of the ducklings:

And the hen with her brood as they swam towards the shadows of the creek bank:

What a pleasant surprise!

Nice Jackie,
I always love seeing wood ducks, but don't see them that often.

Thanks for sharing.
