It rain until about noon yesterday. Depending on who you listen to, we had about 9 -10" of rain in the past two days. We are having more rain today. The lakes all flooded in our park. There are some ducklings that lived in the large lake that is in the other part of the park. They are now living in our lake. We think they when their lake overflowed, they just swam down to our lake. They are the Black Bellied Whistling Ducks. Two interesting things about these ducks: 1) They actually perch in trees. We saw several one day in a tree, but we didn't have our camera with us. 2) It appears that more than just the parents protect the ducklings. Yesterday, all the adult ducks gathered around the ducklings when we approached them. We have been trying to get pictures of them for a few weeks, but can't get close to them.
