Thursday I was at the store and when I was leaving i saw a family of ducks sitting in the middle of the parking lot. I could see they had babies, so i drove up to them as did another woman at the same time. There is acreek that runs through this shopping center and ducks are always around this time of year. Just last week we took an adult female to a vet around here that does duck and goose rehabilitation because she had been hit by a car. Anyway, I thought about just leaving them be and hoping for the best but I thought how I would feel the next day when I came back and they were all just grease spots on the asphalt. So, with the mother duck flogging and biting me I scooped up 6 and ran around with the other lady stoppign traffic, and caught the other 3. I tried to catch mom too but that didn't happen. Now we have 9 little babies under the brooder and all are doing well. They were only 2 or 3 days old when I found them. Iknow, I know, I interfered with nature but they had a very little chance if I had left them. There was also a dead goose about a block away from where I found them last week. Now if the adults can't get out of the way of vehicles, I know the babies were doomed.
