Make Way for Ducklings
The pond across from Target is a popular nesting place--and trouble spot. "Another year, same place, I got a frantic call from friends who were there," Sue emails. "A mom duck and her babies [were] running around in and out of the cars.
"I went out because my friends were so upset. I had a net in my car, as well as a big plastic tote and I was extremely lucky to grab the mother, the babies stayed with her and I carried them all to the pond. That was total luck and not recommended!!"
