Three Black-bellied Whistling-Duck ducklings with one of their parents nearby but out of the picture.
I first photographed these ducklings on 8/19/2007 when they were just a few days old and super cute. Now they are older and a little less cute.
Worse yet, there were originally eight ducklings but now there are only three left. It's not easy growing up as a duckling.
Update 09/25/2007 - Today I saw the family with the original eight ducklings (now seven). So these three ducklings are not what's left of eight ducklings. Sorry for the scare.
