A happy ending.
One evening over the weekend the grand kids found a little bundle of baby ducklings huddled together in the corner of our yard, no mother duck nearby.
The next morning they were all gone....except one little lost and lonely duckling. Laura and Shannon did the only thing they thought would help, take the lone duckling to the water around the corner, and when they released it some large ducks pecked at it and they left discouraged.
Last evening we went back for one look at the drop off place....and the little duckling was happily eating grass next to a couple of protective ducks, and the fact that he was the only duck tells us he was probably adopted by them...and we were very happy that for once nature was not rough but kind to a little lost duckling.
