Baby Duckling delivered by the storm

.
We had strong storms move through the area recently, complete with quarter-size hail and winds strong enough to send my sons and I scrambling for the basement.  The morning after the storm, I was walking to check the crops for storm damage (none!) and I saw a newly born baby duckling swimming in a puddle of rain in my greenhouse plastic.

No mother in sight, may have arrived from a neighbor's pond 1/4 mile away.... no idea.  My sons have adopted it and we'll keep it safe until it's old enough to survive on it's own.

  1. This is a baby wood duck. They nest in hollow trees. Do you have any hollow trees in your yard?
