Make way for my ducklings!

We have baby ducks. Mama duck was nesting in our yard when we got home from our trip to Ireland. They hatched on May 31. There were eight to begin with, but a hawk took one, and we are not sure what happened to the other. She has seven in this picture. My husband has been feeding them, so I don't know how long she and they will stay. Usually, the ducks leave a few days after hatching, for other waters, better eating.
