Pair of wood ducks with 17 chicks, female mottled brown with dark band down back, male with grey wings and black band down back.
Subtropical edge of town park with pond.
You don't usually see these guys with quite so many chicks, but this seems to be a good location for them and there is always at least ten pairs here, at this mating time of year.
