Snowbird where are you? Baby in distress!

He fell out of a tree near a mama duck and ducklings. Mama sounded alarm, babies ran behind her. Mama duck pursued, baby bird fluttered across pond, almost drowned!!! I kicked off my shoes, was ready to jump in but he made one, big heroic flutter and made landfall.

Now mama bird has discovered baby is gone, dive-bombs mama duck. i ran and got a CM who got an empty box to capture baby. She got dive-bombed too. Mama bird just won’t let anyone help.

  1. Did they ever get the baby? Chances are he was fledging (learning to fly). Hopefully he will be ok. I can’t tell what kind it is but looks kind of like a Grackle. Hope he is ok.
