This is the reason my craft room wasn't visited today. I found this cutie, which my daughter has named Petunia, as I was driving down the middle of my street. I swerved to avoid hitting it, then stopped the car to "rescue" it. There were no other ducks to be found. It looked at me as if to say, "Are you my mother?" So, having hatched ducks in the classroom for years and cared for wild ducklings in the school courtyard, I am its mom, TEMPORARILY. My plan is to ask neighbors if they've seen a family around and if not, then find a real family to adopt it. It is so little. Must be only a day or two old. I'm guessing it's a wood duck. Let's just hope this post has a happy ending.
