So, to add to the wild kingdom we already had in our backyard, word got out to a bachelor duck who took up residence a few days ago and hasn’t left. We’re unsure whether or not he’s injured though, if he is, it’s not obvious. Aside from the buffet of wild animal food we have for him to pick from, we do not have any sort of water source for him...unless you count the auto sprinklers that pop on every other morning. So, today I took out a low flat pan of water to him - and he was very thirsty...he even tried climbing in the pan to get his feet wet, though it’s really too small for that. So, I filled one of our party drink tubs with water and gave him a shower with the hose afterwards which elicited a few excited quacks. He’s still suspicious of the tub...I’m sure he’ll be floating in it in no time. After checking out good food to feed wild ducks, I prepared lunch for him and I THINK he ate all the lettuce, while nibbling a bit at the corn and oats. Flip though the pics and you’ll be rewarded with a bideo at the end of him discovering the food!
