Make way for (more) ducklings!

Giselle decided to sit on another nest, after losing her other ducklings.  This time, she hatched 7, with 5 others that got about halfway out before dying.  Still, 7 is a big brood, and she is taking better care of them then she did her first babies.  I hope they make it!  I love watching them run and tumble all across the grass, and see them learning how to swim and eat.

Also, we've had 6 of these nasty guys so far this summer.  I bet there will be several more before the season is over.  Ick.
