Anyways, I wanted to tell you about this little story of mine. Last week as I was leaving the apartment, I walked out the door and literally almost stepped on a bunch of baby ducks! They scattered with their mother leading the pack away from the door and I immediately grabbed my camera. I don't think I'll ever get over the sheer cuteness of baby ducks. Or baby anythings.
Oh my goodness. Cuties! Don't you love that they even have signs for duck crossings? I think it's so polite that even in a huge city like Miami, a whole stream of cars still stop for a mother duck and her babies crossing the road.
I saw these guys a few different times by our door throughout the day but they were gone the next day. I think the mama duck was a little leery of me and my camera. At first I thought that these were the little babies that had hatched by our house, but found the expectant mother still sitting safely on her eggs.
She's gotten used to us passing by her spot everyday and I always check on her to see if they have hatched yet. She doesn't jump up every time we pass by though and is pretty quiet now. I think it should be any day now when the eggs will finally hatch!
What about you guys? Do any of you have birds' eggs waiting to be hatched or have you seen any sightings of baby birds lately? :)
