Ugly Ducklings

These guys are young mallards. It appears that they were either born out of season (unusal in the wild) or they were born late last year. They still flock like very young birds so I am guessing that they were born at an unusual time. Any experts out there please comment. This was taken on Saturday.

No idea but they look so cosy all flocking together

Hey, hone! Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like they are FEMALEs to me. Don't know why they're "flocking" that way, but aren't they "girls?"
