Hi Ann, Those are Mallards, right?  I love the fuzzy little ducklings.

By the way, Ann, I am honored to post my 5,000th comment on your post!  This is it... #5,000!

a Columbus RE agent tweeted (or maybe it was  on Facebook?) that he saw a Mama duck and a whole line of baby ducks crossing traffic in downtown Columbus today.  They stopped traffic.

Love the green heads... it is so unfair the guys get to be the pretty ones. Cute fuzzy babies.

It makes me want to walk down to the lake (Lake Norman) and feed the ducks.  Thanks for sharing the photos.

That's interesting. I count 13 little duckies. I've been to four places out here now that have little duckies. All four had mommies with 13 little duckies. I wonder if 13 is the lucky number for mallards or if this is the year of 13. Here's the picture I got with the most duckies in it.
