Posted on May 10, 2020May 10, 2020 by L. L. CobleHappy Mother’s Day Some of the newest mothers in the lower Susquehanna valley—nurturing their young. A hen Wood Duck keeping close watch on recently hatched ducklings. A female Eastern Bluebird feeding hungry nestlings. A hen Hooded Merganser giving diving lessons. And a soon-to-be mother making the necessary preparations to bring a new generation into the world. A female Baltimore Oriole begins construction of a hanging nest that will protect her eggs and young from some of the hazards of early life. Have a Happy Mother’s Day!
