Pre-flight Check

Mallards, Roger’s Pond, Kennebunk Maine

This is the first time I have seen Canada Geese and Mallards in Roger’s Pond. I often see Mallards in the river right next to the pond, but never in the pond itself…and I have never seen Canada Geese anywhere near there. ?? This young Mallard was doing a pre-flight check of his wings, but he never did get into the air. The whole group scuttled off into the water when a dog approached.
