Below --A better picture of Harry eating with Bubba and Louise. Usually, Bubba doesn't allow this, but he makes exceptions for Harry at times. Harry has the slight white ring that does not complete his neck. Bubba has no ring. Harry is eyeing me. Bubba is pigging out.
Below is Louise's injured friend, or daughter. I could not get too close, but you can see the deep cut, how she holds the leg up. She hops on one leg. I suspect this is one of Louise's daughters from her successful nest two years ago. They all come back to visit. I will post a video of Louise's grandchildren. This injured duck showed up alone but flew away when I went outside. Later, she came back with the grand matriarch, Louse, who came to the patio window demanding corn. I fed both of them. The injured duck stayed far away, then came only when I was out of sight. I had to get shots through the window. Louise has come back intermittently with this duck for feedings. She once chased a male out of the yard. I helped her. She is very protective.
Below. Another look at Louise's friend/daughter eating. She lays on her belly to eat due to the injured leg.
Below. I believe this is Louise Jr. (one of her daughters from a successful nesting two years ago) and her babies. Louse, the proud grandmother, forced her to come show me the family. Louise must be so proud.
I like to write about people, animals, dogs. I enjoy ideas, good books about ideas, funny books about ideas, funny people who have ideas, advocates for people who don't have voices to express their ideas, and animals who have ideas we can't understand.
