Fluffy Little Birds

Spring has arrived and it’s nice to see more sunshine and less rain. Out on a walk at the local wetlands, I spied some cute fluffy spring babies!

I saw 4 different black swan families, ranging from 6 babies to only 2, and all at different stages. This swan family was close to the boardwalk and allowed me to get some nice shots of the littlies before mum and dad decided to head off.

And then further along there was another family swimming near the boardwalk, but it was so windy, the little ones kept hiding behind one of their parents, probably to keep out of the wind.

I also saw this adorable Chestnut teal family! ๐Ÿ˜

Here they are in action:

And had to share this funny photo ๐Ÿ˜†

  1. Lovely shots and footage Sue of the spring waterbirds down there. The juveniles are so cute and fluffy. This is something we are missing this spring, as all our usual bird breeding spots are outside our 5 km restriction zone.

    1. Thanks Ashley. It must be very frustrating for you not being able to travel far from home at the moment. Hopefully there will be an end to the lockdowns soon if the vaccination rates keep going up. Hope you have a good weekend!
