Modo’s precarious beginning.

Here’s about four minutes of video I took of Modo day before yesterday while I was trying to assess his chances for survival.  For those who missed it, he’s a little hunchback duckling I found in the middle of our driveway.  He’d fallen over and couldn’t get back up so the mother had to leave him.

Pretty adorable.

  1. Dear Dia,
    This little duckling was such a gift. I watched from a distance all the beautiful characteristics called “Motherhood” come out of you as you nursed this creature from the brink of death. It did not seem a mistake that this happened leading in to Mother’s Day, and that you found a sanctuary for birds that would take “him” in.
    With McKenna getting married soon, I hope you see that you have done as good a job with this recent duckling…as you have with your own daughter. It has been a pleasure and an honor to watch you “work”.
    The H.
