In the spirit of the holiday season, today's Featured Feathered Friend (or friends) are the mallard duck statues in the Boston Public Garden in Boston, MA. During a mini Christmas trip Nick and I took to Boston last year, we stumbled upon these adorable statues of a mother mallard and her ducklings. These statues were erected in honor of the children's book Make Way for Ducklings written and illustrated by Robert McCloskey in 1941. The delightful story is about a pair of ducks who decide to raise their eight ducklings in an island in the lagoon of the Boston Public Garden.
Nick and I were lucky enough to get to the park early enough before other visitors came along. I was able to get some lovely pics of these cute ducks with their decorative holiday bows as they seemed to be waddling in the Boston snow.
***Merry Christmas, Everyone! We hope that you all have a wonderful holiday season!***
