House Talk with Silvia Dukes


Spring is here when the Ducklings appear!

Spring is here when the Ducklings appear!


Although some northern States are still dealing with cold weather and even snow, Spring has certainly arrived in full force here in Florida. 

The other day I was outside by the seawall doing some weeding weeding when this proud Mama Duck came by showing off her brood.  They stayed around for a little while especially since I threw in some free bread - long enough for me to get a shot of all of them together. 

Look closely, altogether there are sixteen little ducklings - quite a big family!

Sylvia I thought Spring was here, and then snow decided to pay us a visit.  Spring for me is when I cut the lawn for the first time.

Oh my, what a large family. Mama duck must have taken in some strays to get that size of family! I love this time for year and see lots of babies on our lake.

Hi Silvia.  That is a great photo.  Can you imaging having 16 new ones born at one time?

THey are adorable ducklings. Last year when on the lake in Tennessee.... we had many ducks around the boat and yes we were feeding them.

Silvia -- I love it when I see a family and they all line up and follow their mother. We still have cold here in CT.  Although it's 52 here now, it's still raw.  I am yearning for the 80s - 90s like you have! Enjoy your spring!

So very cute, Silvia!  And, you are absolutely right, we know it's spring when the ducklings appear!

Hi Silvia, How cute they are. Spring is definitely here because the ducklings are out.

Silvia Dukes PA, REALTOR, CRS, CIPS, SRES Thanks for sharing the family with us.  The mergansers and turkey vultures are migrating through the Great Lakes now.  Our Goldfinches are turning bright yellow as well.

That's a wonderful photo, Silvia. Mama duck has quite the family to watch over. Bet they appreciate the goodies...and will be back

Great photo captures, Silvia. My mind flashed to the kids' book, Make Way for Ducklings as I read your post.

Jeff Dowler CRS thank you, some duck families are rather proliferate!

Lottie Kendall thanks, I am not familiar with the book so I'll have to check it out!
