Last week a mother duck led her ducklings into our neighbors pool. I sat quietly and took photos for a while before realizing that the ducklings were in trouble. Since the ducklings were so young and weak they couldn’t jump up the side of the pool and were in danger of drowning. We fashioned a ramp to the side of the pool to help them climb out. The mother duck and her ducklings quickly jumped onto the ramp but would not climb all the way out. We were just happy that they were safe and dry. The next morning we checked again and they were gone. It was great that it all ended well for the adorable ducklings!
