All the raindrops don't have to be lemon drops and gumdrops for these babies to splash about! AWC's little duckling duo have grown right before our eyes and are now enjoying outside swims in our larger pool. So even though the weather has been wet it hasn't stopped them from having a little fun!
It's always important to watch where you land...a lesson this Pied-billed Grebe learned the hard way! What he thought was a large dark lake turned put to be a parking lot.

This precious hybrid duckling has a leg deformity or perhaps an old injury that didn't heal correctly but as you can see he's beginning to stand and walk with his bootie splint!
