I am attaching a photo of a mother duck and ducklings taken at Bradon Lagoon in Langley.
Also one of just a duckling. The colouring of the ducklings is different than what one usually sees in Mallards and the female has slightly different colouring than what I have normally seen in a female Mallard. Possibly a Hybrid?? Any thoughts... Thanks. Neal

Hi Neal,

These are the same ducklings I asked about here on the forum a couple of weeks ago. Glad you posted them, I been wondering how they are doing!
