Lucky Duck!

After more than a month of rehabilitation, our female mallard recovered from lead poisoning and was ready to be released into the wild. We asked for your help and you delivered: multiple callers and Facebookers responded with ideas of local mallard populations that our duck could join.

The one we picked ended up being the perfect spot: the junction of two rivers with a resident mallard population. After a few moments of tentative paddling, our duck spotted a group of mallards across the river, and with a few loud quacks, she flew off to join them. Thank you to everyone that called in and wrote on our
Facebook wall with suggestions! Watch the mallard release here.
