Alice and EdithWe have new ducks, as Alice and Edith have come to live here at our rescue. A predator took one of their flock mates and, a few days later, took another. Fearing for the safety of these two girls, their owner asked us to take them.
I dropped a bag on the floor, when I bent down to pick it up a sweet little Macaw voice asked “are you alright?” It was our very smart Scarlet Macaw, Macushi, asking the question. Macushi is one of the more challenging birds at the rescue. She does things on her terms.
Each morning when I feed the ducks in the front Barnyard I am greeted by our smallest goat, Spike. He has been with us for three months and is an estimated six months old. Although his girth has increased, he has not seemed to grow height-wise.
You may remember the Sandhill Crane juvenile we rescued a couple weeks ago. She got her wing caught under a gate and was wedged between the gate and the fence on her back. We do not know how long she laid like that, but my guess is it was awhile. She had bruised her wings.
I am deeply saddened to report the loss of our beautiful Crested Pekin Duck, Cotton. He was killed by a predator as he laid beside the fence. I do not believe it was a wildlife predator, as they usually wreak havoc causing much more loss of life.
