Ducklings & Montreal's Biodome

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!  The video I have selected for this post is a 1 minute clip of a mother duck teaching her ducklings how to swim.  Enjoy!

The photos I am sharing today are ones that I took at Montreal's Biodome a few years ago.  I have no idea what species of bird they are, but there were two of them and they seemed to be very much at ease in my presence and were walking freely around.  Do any of you know what species of bird this is?  You just need to click on the image to see a larger view.




Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share.
