The Slow Duck

After picking up some medications at the pharmacy I came upon this rather slow walking duck. I feel so bad for the bird! Apparently it’s sick or injured, perhaps both. There were several folks at the little park watching birds, and their dogs run them into the lake. Thanks for that! πŸ˜‚

    • He’s OK, waddled just off the main road area. Sorry for the delay, your comment went to the spam folder!

  1. Poor duck, I’ve got a White Ibis nearby me that has one leg broke and hangs, it cannot stand on it. I feel bad for it…. Those of us that feel bad are nature lovers! πŸ™‚

  2. That’s so heartbreaking to see. I saw a Canada goose like that one evening. Doubt if he lived through the night. Predators love injured birds.

    • Well… There’s no water on that side of the road, he was heading toward the lake but stopped at the curb. Maybe he couldn’t hop up, I don’t know.

    • Me toooo! I was moving at the 35mph speed limit and saw him a couple hundred feet or so away, had time to slow down! πŸ₯°
