We got five ducklings on Saturday. When I got home from work tonight, one duckling was struggling in the pool (a dishpan), all sodden and nonboyant, having trouble getting out. I scooped him (?) up and dried him off, then canoodled and held till he stopped shivering. Then he clambered up on my shoulder like my cockatiel used to do. Didn't want to go back to the Enclosure. I feel pretty bonded.
