So now I have a duckling in a box in the kitchen. He's surrounded by a towel and half the box is on a heating blanket on low (I googled for info on how to keep it comfortable). I've left messages at both wildlife rehabilitation centers. Hopefully I will hear from them early in the morning. If I wouldn't have picked him up he would have been squashed, and now that I've picked him up he his motherless. Great choices :(
Sorry this isn't a quilty post as was my intention. Quilting can wait until I find a place for the duckling. My husband told me it was not going to be adopted into our family. He's a little worried. You see, as long as we have been married I've said I want a duck (half jokingly). It's been my desire ever since I saw Journey to the Center of the Earth when I was little. One of the characters, Hans, had a duck named Gertrude. I thought he was the luckiest man on earth to have a pet duck! Anyway, off to check the duckling, then it's bedtime. (Can't believe 3 dogs have not discovered there is a duck in the house! Great trackers the lot of them!)
Saturday Morning Update: The little one is safe and sound in an incubator at the Pembina Veterinary Clinic. They will hold him until Prairie Wildlife can pick him up (along with another one someone else brought in).
