--Once again, Banyan was the ultimate duck spotter. Mama and her five ducklings were in a great hiding place on the north bank of the canal leading to the pond's east bank.
--Ducks slept for a few minutes keeping a cautious eye on us. Mama and one duckling snuggled up higher on the bank, four other ducklings, including one with hurt left leg, below.
--Ducklings periodically panted due to heat.
--Duckling with hurt left leg awkwardly slips into the pond.
--Other four ducklings and mama followed, approaching Banyan and Benjamin for food. They threw grass, which was sampled several times before load reproachful quacks from mama.
