As I was looking over the northern pond, more Whistling Ducks emerged from the reeds. This time it was a group of of two adults and 7 young. Judging by their size and how striped their heads are, these ducklings seem to be rather younger than the others.
Whistling Ducks weren't the only birds down at the ponds. The trees had several Great-tailed Grackles and European Starlings, while the edges of the water had Mourning Doves and Killdeer. Our two resident Green Herons were out and about - unfortunately, I haven't seen any sign of baby herons yet - and a Great Egret was fishing the northern pond.
Meanwhile a Snowy Egret was pacing around in the smallest of the three ponds.
