Harvey’s Kids

This is Harvey, and if you have read my blog, you’ve met him before. He’s an injured goose that stays at the lake year round.
This year however, he raised a clutch of ducklings!
Momma duck left the nest when she thought the ducklings were old enough to fend for themselves, but Harvey had other ideas. He tended to them and now they are his. Since Harvey does not fly, neither do these ducks. I guess they will get the model for flying from some of the wild ducks that come thru the park, but in the meantime, they walk or swim where they need to go.
 Like all ducks, they have learned how to panhandle!
