Ducklings. I've made some initial sketches for the Newfoundland related alphabet book and this is one of them. Ducks aren't peculiar to Newfoundland but there will be something Newfoundland-related or farm related in the background for these little guys.
This was based on a photo of ducklings that hatched last year here. They were an assortment of Pekin and Pekin crosses, ending up with some unusual colours. They are funny, all moving in a group as if attached by invisible cords.
