The ugly duckling?

Ducks at Wilderness Park

At the park last weekend (before our warmer weather returned—notice those jackets!), the geese held sway at one end of the park (see The goose takes a gander) and the ducks ruled at this end.

Ducks at Wilderness ParkAt least, they did until this guy appeared. I first noticed him looking all stately and quiet on the other side of the lake. But apparently the idea of all that bread being spread around was too tempting for him.

He landed with a splash in the middle of the ducks, where he stuck out like a sore thumb. Then he made a nuisance of himself trying to hoard all the treats.
