A Good Day to Duck Hunt!

Do you know how hard it is to catch 12 ducklings that are darting in all directions under the cover of pacasandra? Their coloring doesn't help much either. 
Though I'm sad mama never came back for her babies, I'm very pleased to let you know that all 12 duckies are now safe and sound in their new home for the next nine weeks!

Dear Duck Lovers,
RaeAnn has made contact with a licensed "duck rehabilitator" who is willing to take our brood and raise them in comfort and safety. The little peepers will be gathered up after school today and taken to EarthPlace for the hand off. 
Thanks for all the help, suggestions, and good wishes that you all have supplied during this event. It takes a whole school to raise a batch of ducklings!


it's a good day for baby ducks!


  1. So gald that the babies will be safe but I miss them already.

  2. Great job, you duck lovers! And we are lucky to have Earthplace so close.

  3. Oh good, that's such good news for these lil ones... sooooo cuuute!

  4. How wonderful for them, I hope their mama doesnt miss them too much ... you and your whole school are super for making sure they get a good home.

  5. Thank you for saving the duckies! It was a lovely intervention!
