For the first time since May, we went to the park for a walk. And, out of morbid curiosity, to check on the ducks....The ducks with the homicidal mother were still there, albeit a lot bigger.... We knew it was the same family because when a duck from outside the group approached, the largest of the ducks went waddling at it as fast as she could and shooed it off. The duck from outside the group also had a broken bill - half of its bill was gone. Perhaps he/she (no coloring on the heads of any of the ducklings, however large, so it's possible some of them are males) had been in a tussle with the maniac mama before. If so, that duck is downright scary! Alas, I did not have a camera, so still no duck pictures.
