above show off just a few of the many waterfowl (ducks & more) which
love to wade along the water at the Japanese Hill and Pond Garden. Fallen
leaves are evident on the water's surface and captivates the attention
of all as these birds quack on. You might find yourself mesmerized by these
beautiful creatures during a visit to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden regardless
of the season.
||As a side note,
did you know that one of the things which makes ducks different from other
waterfowl such as geese and swans is their shorter necks and legs as well
as other anatomical items. This pair as seen in the photo above on the
right may very well be in the process of a courtship considering how much
time they spent swimming alongside each other. Also note that a nest contains
from 4 to 12 eggs. It'd be hard to not imagine that there are ducks' nests
throughout the Brooklyn Botanic Garden Grounds.
