Predators don’t always win!

Last night an angel came to our home, via Cyrus, who said that he noticed her in his yard early in the morning. She appeared to have been attacked by something, so he tried to bandage her up as best he could. After contacting us mid-afternoon, he brought her by a few hours later. Our […]

Graham Quacker

Saturday morning I received a call from Bonnie, regarding a domestic duck that had been making his ’home’ between a couple of houses on a residential street in Redford, in an open lot that fills up with standing water. He had apparently been there for a few months, just sleeping on the edge of the […]

Easter Sadness for So Many Angels

Easter is supposed to be a wonderful time of year, but for MANY ducklings and chicks, (and even bunnies) it is only a time of sadness, abuse and even death. You see, this is the time of year that the push is on for the sale of tens of thousands of baby ducks and chicks, […]

Invisible Noose, the Fishing Line!

WARNING: VERY GRAPHIC! This post is more of a public awareness piece, than it is one of our usual rescue stories. Waterfowl, both wild and abandoned domestic, face MANY obstacles when trying to fend for survival in the wilderness. Often, their most challenging fate is the numerous predation factors that lurk among them. The most […]

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

                                                  Merry Christmas, and may you all have a wonderful New Year!  Thank you all so much for your support throughout this past year. (I had to borrow this sweet picture, until […]

Doug, this one’s for you!

Early Wednesday afternoon, Joan called to inform us that there was a Pekin in a trailer park in Mt. Morris, just north of Flint, that was in dire need of rescue.  Apparently, half of her upper bill was gone.  I called the management of what appeared to be a somewhat desolated community, and they were […]

Little Mama Sabastopol

Just a quick post to let you all know that we are still alive and rescuing like crazy.  I received a text last night from Laura, who informed us of an abandoned Domestic goose left by some idiot to fend for herself at a very unsafe area in Dundee, MI.  Once Theresa and I arrived […]

Prayers for Kaylee

This is a post that I needed to put ahead of all of the (many) others, because this angel girl needs prayers ASAP.  Kaylee, named after the girl who drove almost two hours from Kalamazoo to bring her to us, who bitten by a dog while she roamed freely around (and not IN) her property.  Apparently there […]

Flynn’s second chance!

This morning our friends, Angie and her daughter Kaitlyn, who sometimes help us out on rescues in the downriver area, brought us a handsome Rouen drake that they were able to capture at a local ‘dumping ground’ in Taylor. It was at Heritage Park, a beautiful area that we had mentioned in previous posts, because […]

Swans like salad too!

I always like to thank Kroger now and then for providing fresh produce for our entire flock. Since the pond has just ‘sprung’ into spring, vegetation is sparse, so with the daily influx of donated greens, even our three beautiful swans get their much need doses of vitamins A and C. Maggie (actually a boy), […]
