    Is there any way you can get a better and clearer picture? Especially of her head. It is hard to tell with the pic you have. I know you don't want to scare her though.

    Is she tame?

    Quote:I suggest that you find a wildlife resculer ASAP. You know nothing about this duck, at least they have a network of experts they can get info from.
