The WLNS Duck Family Debuts

Posted: Updated:
(WLNS) - It's traditionally one of the surest signs of summer  - the return of the WLNS mallard ducks.

Each year a pair of mallards make their home in the station's backyard and they're back again.

Today Momma Mallard took the ducklings for a little swim in the station's swimming pool (yes, the station has a swimming pool).

She led her brood of 8-10 babies around the water for a while and then hustled them back across the lawn to their nest.  We didn't get an accurate count because we didn't want to get too close and they stayed bunched together during their big adventure.

We'll be posting pictures as the ducklings grow up and leave the nest.
