Geckos aren't the only ones having babies around here. The birds are still having plenty of young outside. Just when I thought our Common Moorhen population couldn't get any larger, more young were born this week. These nestlings are over a week old but they are still hanging out in the nest.
And of course, a post on baby animals wouldn't be complete without the latest Black-bellied Whistling Duck picture. We have two clutches of young but the numbers are dwindling. We started out with a clutch of 8 and one of 11. Now we have a clutch of 5 and a clutch of 7. I'll be happy as long as a few of them make it. Black-bellied Whistling Ducks usually nest farther north but they seem quite happy at Green Cay for the moment.
Oh, I almost forgot! The latest rumor is that we have Limpkin babies at the park as well. Though I have noticed an influx of adults, I still haven't seen the young. Yesterday I saw 6 adults in less than half a mile. Maybe if I'm lucky, I'll have baby Limpkin pictures soon!
