On 4th March 2017, nine little ducklings were trapped in a drain along Sunview Way. Photographers who were there managed to get them out.
Once out, they ran towards their parents and three other siblings that were awaiting for them (below).
Once the nine ducklings were together again (below)…
…the two adults led them towards the undergrowth (below).
Now the question of whether they were Wandering Whistling-duck (Dendrocygna arcuate) or Lesser Whistling-duck (Dendrocygna javanica) or hybrids? We appreciate feedbacks on this.
