Visit 5: May 12, 2010, 9:45 am

--Found mama duck sleeping on east side of pond, same place we found her yesterday morning.
--She was 'guarded' by two sentinel ducks. Their quacking awoke her and she looked at us alertly. --We were able to sneak around a clump of bushes and watch her. Her babies were all sleeping beneath her or nestled right next to her body. --As they woke up they all began preening, imitating their mother.--Met a woman at the playground that said she'd seen the ducklings about three weeks ago, and that there were about a dozen of them then.
