    So during the summer i occasionally find a dead bird (sparrow) in the ducks little kiddie pool. Or sometimes i find a dead one in between the fence and the ducks house. So what i was wondering was, did my ducks kill them? I have one male and one female. Any help would be great, thank you!

    Welcome to BYC
    sometimes birds just die from disease but i did find a beautiful male Cardinal laying on the ground where my ducks were all standing around, I am thinking he may have tried to get to their feeder and one got him I have no way of knowing or sure but I wouldn't put it past them .I also found a baby wren in the pool once I think it fledged and feel in the pool [​IMG]
