First let me say that I'm the biggest proponent of leaving nature alone, and my best friend is a wildlife rehabber but we both have little experience with ducks. Anyway, while driving along Rt. 80 in NJ I spied 4 little heads in the grass of the center median. Then I saw 4 waddling bodies heading towards the fast lane. By the time I got off at the next exit, did a u turn, then did another u turn and pulled off near them two had already been run over. Sadly I was only able to save one of the two remaining ones My 5 year old daughter is quite upset at seeing the last one being hit. But I digress. I have one pretty small what I believe to be wood duckling (based on coloring and eye striping) that is calling for his/her family and most unhappy with being here. I plan to take him to a gal who does waterfowl rehab tomorrow, couldn't get there today it was too late. I have him/her in a box with a light for heat, water (not real deep) and offered chopped lettuce and some millet seed for lack of any proper duck food. Does anyone have any suggestions of anything else I can/should do to make him more calm and happy? I can't imagine the stress of being along a major highway with cars going past at literally 80 mph when you're only a few inches tall! I did syringe feed a small amount of water just to make sure he stays hydrated, which is more important than food at this point. Thanks in advance. As I said, I am pretty strongly opposed to removing any animal from the wild, but being smashed by a car seemed like a pretty unfair ending.
