Today's duck count is the same as Wednesday's (2; 1; 1), though things aren't looking good for the youngest chick. It looks like its mother has abandoned it to the less than tender mercies of the quad. While the mother of the two oldest ducklings has also abandoned them, they're practically adult ducks now (at least in size). In this latter case, I think their mother was trying to tell them something - something that they don't seem to have picked up on yet. Anyway, so far the youngest duckling is still with us, and will likely still get food courtesy of NOCS staff, but there's no-one looking out for it now, so its fate isn't looking good. Mother Nature truly is a bitch.
