So there's this nice little park that we've been going to since forever. In the last year or so there's been a boom of ducks, domestic & wild, that have showed up. Also 2 geese that were OBVIOUSLY someones pets, They eat feed and they're just so sweet, they even let you pet 'em. What's even sadder is that the Embden Gander is REALLY OLD. I just wanna bring em home and im not even a goose person! For the wild ones...there's a few new ones that look Mandarin, 2 new Loon pairs, 1 strange black one & a lone little wood duck hen that have been there for quite a while. She's the cutest little thing there and i just feel so bad for her, not having a mate and all. I wish i could find her a drake or find her a home or something (but then that would be kinda mean too!). she's just so cute & makes me sad she's going to lay a clutch of eggs this year probably with no luck ... I have no idea what the black one is or if its a hen. I am POSITIVE this park will need to find homes for some ducks, clear nests or take babies... Just sucks so many people dump their ducks at parks. I got some pics of all the ducks & I will try to post them up soon. ETA: There's also another park near me (in the same city) that I know has domestic ducks, Blue swedish & I think a Pekin at it. It's been a long time since i've been there though so i'm sure there's more now.
