The Mallard babies at the Stoneybrook ponds are almost as big as their parents. So we were surprised to see two tiny chicks the other night. They are so cute when they are little! I’m constantly amazed at how baby ducks look so different than their parents.
Unfortunately, we went back the next night, and we only found one little Mallard. We named him Chico. He’s fun to watch — while all the other ducks stick together as they roam the golf course, he wanders off on his own. Even the lawn mower didn’t seem to bother him. He’s a brave little guy!
