Seems that the babies had hatched! Now, the closest body of water to the hospital is the Huron River. In order to get her babies to it the momma would have to cross two busy streets and a rail road track. I thought maybe they would just follow momma and babies and stop the traffic so they could cross safely, but the plan was to put the babies in a box, capture the momma and bring them all safely down to the river.
When I got out there, they had already put the babies in a box and they were trying to catch the momma. She was having none of that!
I watched for about 15 minutes and then I had to leave. One of my coworkers was out there 30 minutes after I left and they were still trying to catch her! I was worried about her all night!
On Friday when I got to work there was a sign by the empty nest.
It's hard to read but it says "Mother duck and all chicks are down at the Huron River and doing fine. Thanks for carefully watching her" Whew! One less thing to worry about!
In other news...Shauna bought a wedding dress yesterday! It's gorgeous, too and she knew the minute she put it on that it was the one. I can't post pictures of her in it but here's a little hint...
The buttons that go down the back go all the way down to the end of the train!
Eeek! We're so excited!!
Until the next time.
