Floating away

This morning, around 7 o'clock, my six baby mallards were released on Alkali Lake near Cody. The top photo shows them right after being put in the water. The other is them heading for the large body of water and hopefully getting acquainted with the resident adult ducks living there.

These babies came here about a day old after their mother picked a very bad spot to lay her eggs. She decamped and luckily the babies were found at the apartment complex and I was called. They've been growing like weeds and now that their preen glands are working they are waterproof enough for release.
