This afternoon we rescued an abandoned (Mallard?) duckling. Its mother was nowhere to be found and another neighbor saw one duckling wandering around last night alone in her driveway. No one can recall seeing a mother duck with ducklings in the neighborhood.
Sadly, the other little duckling got away from me while I was catching this one. I remain hopeful that we can find it before we take this baby duckling to the wildlife rescue tomorrow morning. Until then, it will sleep in a Rubbermaid tub in a 78-80 degree room along with our 2 clutches of Leopard gecko eggs.
It is definitely SPRING at Passport Academy Homeschool.
