21 babies



Wood Duck family
Lock 11, Mildura

There are 21 of these babies. I think the parents may have adopted some extras...  there are definitely a few different sizes, with the one in the first photo the littlest. I've loved watching them while I incubate my own little duckling!

  10. That is a lot! There's a story there! As you say there must have been some adopting. I think 11 is the norm for woodies yes?
