Brooklyn Bridge Park has become a favorite spring to summer resting place and breeding ground for ducks. Back in March, I spotted this mallard drake on the uplands of Pier 1. More photos and text follow the jump.
In June I saw this mother duck and three ducklings paddling between Pier 2 and Pier 1.
