This time of the year we always hear a lot of
ducks quacking and splashing in the
seasonal creek below our home.
This past weekend our little neighborhood
had 5 baby ducks wandering around
and peeping for their mother. They were far
away from the creek and we managed to
catch 4 of the 5 babies. We called several
places such as Audubon Society and Humane Society
but because it was the weekend we could not
get any help. So we took the babies down to
the creek hoping the mother duck might
hear them. No sign of a mother duck so
we reluctantly released the babies and
we hope they got reunited. Very sad.
I posted our event on our Nextdoor website
and we heard back hours later from
a person who could have taken them and
raised them safely. I wish he had notified us earlier.
But now I have his information so we can
get immediate help if this ever happens again.
