Freckled Duck Broods

Category: Uncategorized

Two different broods of freckled ducks conducting business on one of the aviary ponds. After the argument between the two females, it’s safe to say that these ducks will not be forming a crèche anytime soon! It is always a joy to watch the antics of a newly hatched brood being reared in the more natural setting of the aviary. You get to see so many examples of these social interactions, which are often quite comical, and highly enriching to both the ducklings and their guardians!
