Easter Ducklings

We were overjoyed this Easter holiday to welcome the perfect Easter treat! No, not chicks but ducklings! Our wader aviary grew by nine this week, as we welcomed a whole flock of tiny fluffy Baer’s pochard ducklings, just in time for Easter weekend! So sweet!

Baer’s pochard are critically endangered; conservationists point to hunting and habitat destruction are thought to be the primary drivers behind their decline. That means that this happy, healthy, strong brood is excellent news! Check out their first swimming lesson in this adorable video!

For more cuteness, please enjoy these feathery and fluffy photos!
