Muscovy Duck with Ducklings

Muscovy Duck, Cairina moschata, and her ducklings at Daylesford, Victoria, Australia This duck was warily protecting her young ones. One of her wings appears to be damaged. I found out why a few minutes later when I saw two crows tossing around something yellow. On closer inspection I found it to be a small duckling. Horrifying !
