These ducks were in the pond outside our patio when we lived in Myrtle Beach. They eventually had four ducklings and, just like some humans, they were terrible parents. A day after we first noticed the ducklings, both parents were gone, leaving the little ones to fend for themselves. It seemed every time I checked on them throughout the day, another one was missing until the next morning when they were all gone.
