    Hi you'll,

    I have been following the progress of a pair of black-bellied whistling ducks
    (I wish they had a shorter name) and their ducklings since July. Here are a few pics taken last month during Frank's visit. If you saw the earlier shots you can see that they have lost their banding and their bumble-bee appearance. One consistent is their order which is a parent on the right a parent on the left with the 9 surviving duckling in-between

    an unusual shot with 8 of the ducklings together on the surface

    you can see where they learned their stuff

    Very cute Harry. I really like the one that's diving off of its parent's back. :smile:
