Oh, a continuation of last Sunday, huh? (Might as well bring Alex her lunch to the pool.)
Leave Mamma Duck a quacker with directions to the tub?
Mama Duck is probably enjoying a well-earned rest while watching her offspring from a sheltered spot. :)
It’s all that third-world living. It makes grandma’s resourcefulness come to the surface.
Alix better hope those baby ducks have not imprinted on her. Else, to them, she’ll be their mother!
A story arc in the Sunday strips! Wonderful!
From last week’s strip, it was daddy duck, not mama.
When we were in Iowa City we’d observe one mother at a time watching all the ducklings wjile the other mothers fed. My then-fiance called it “Ducky Day Care.”
For those who missed it.
I don’t think ducks peep.
Alix you can leave the baby ducklings and have your lunch.
That’s why ducks lay about 20 eggs to a clutch. Some heirs and LOTS of spares.
But she’s doing what she said she would do, a rather mature behavior, really. But a short break shouldn’t be a problem ……. 8^)
That was daddy duck who dropped off the babies, not mama duck.
So right about now Mama is exclaiming, “What do you mean you don’t remember where the babysitter was?!”
To be continued!
That pool is going to be very nasty very soon. Time to invest in a suction filter.
