These six ducklings appeared without their mother. They saw a ringed teal family nearby and tried to join them. But the adults were reluctant to do so.

We stayed a while to see if someone took care of them but nobody did. Although ducklings are not fed by their parents, they drive them to the feeding area and protect them. Small as they are they become easy preys.
