Orphaned Ducklings Update 5/25

The baby ducks that we’ve been telling you about for the last two months aren’t babies anymore! Now they’ve been released into the wild to begin the lives they nearly missed out on.
We were hoping for a big take-off into the wild. But they seemed pretty
happy to just cruise into the lake and start making friends with their
new neighbors.

Here are the first two ducks released.

Then they were joined by two more. One of them thought about flying
away, but opted to stay with his buddies for their last free meal.

After a few minutes they made their first venture into the lake.

As we were leaving, they had already begun to settle in and make new
friends.    (Including a passing squirrel.)

They came to us 2 months ago…just a few days old. Now they’re on their own.
