Fwd: Two new families
-----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org To: prosbird Sent: Wed, Jun 17, 2015 12:32 pm Subject: Two new families
Here are few pictures of the two new families in Prospect Park.
A family of Swans with 6 babies and a family of Wood ducks with 3 babies.
The Wood Duck pictures are not clear because of the distance but I could count 3 babies sitting on the island in the Upper pool with the mother by their side and the father on a branch above them.
The Hummingbird's and the Hairy Woodpecker's nests were empty with no evidence of any activity. I hope it means the babies have fledged successfully.
It was a beautiful day for birding walk in the park.
There are more pictures on my Facebook page.
