The little ducklings are swimming so close to their mother. It is fun to watch the chicks learn to swim.
The Canadian Geese, however, are rather mean and territorial. The geese migrate to Indian Bend Wash each year. There can be 40 or more at a time in a particular area. They will chase you and attack occasionally.
I do like the ducks. We have Mallard ducks that fly into our pool area at times to try and make a home.
It is sort of funny that we live in a desert but have this seven-mile long recreation greenbelt that has now become a home for ducks and geese. We actually have duck crossing signs in some areas of Scottsdale.
