Wild Care’s “Mallard Mom” fosters orphaned duckling
“Ilean” earns her keep as a foster mom
From the compassionate people at Wild Care Cape Cod:
Our resident educational Mallard, “Ilean” is earning her keep! Here she is with a duckling that was trapped in a storm drain. Rescuers were not able to reunite the duckling with its mom.
Ilean has been very tolerant and patient with her new tiny friend. It is our hope that she will foster any orphaned ducklings we receive this season.
