["Hang onto the safety rope. Don't dawdle back there"]
I don't think all turned out well. Two ducklings ran north in the direction of a church parking lot. Then west toward a large unfenced yard.
["Westward ho, too quick to catch"]
My wife found zero evidence of the family after a quick walk down the lane two minutes later. I heard no cheeping for the rest of the day but will scout around shortly... knowing nature (and cats, dogs, skunks, raccoons and larger birds) can be very cruel.
Questions comes to mind re these avian antics: E.g., Is it becoming more common for ducks to breed and raise families in residential (e.g., Old South) neighbourhoods?
