We Will Miss This Sweet Girl
It is with great sadness that we share the loss of Ilean our beloved Mallard Duck. Ilean came to us in 2016 with a deformed leg, and could not be released, but she had nesting instincts and became a mother figure to all of our orphaned springtime ducklings. She taught them duck behaviors like preening, and gave them a warm place to snuggle up. Ilean had a unique bond with volunteer Jody Rice-Hines, and enjoyed swim time in the care of Jody, and Kate Martel. Thank you to everyone that sponsored Ilean since she came to us. Ilean was a very special animal, and loved by all of us at Wild Care. We will miss this sweet girl.
