--Circumnavigated entire pond in search of ducklings.
--Saw one lone female mallard emerge and quack loudly in the middle of the pond near the fountain.
--Saw a second lone female mallard near canal west of pond.
--Asked park visitors if they had seen ducklings. They said they thought they saw the mother peek her head out to check for safety and retreat. May have been one of other female ducks.
--We hypothesized that the duck family was resting in the safety of the northwest pond bank, where the growth is so thick that the bank is hidden from the viewpoint of the path.
