It’s that time of year, when geese and their goslings and ducks and their ducklings are moving from nests to feeding areas to ponds.
And the danger is ever-present for this most ubiquitous of urban wildlife.
So it was nice to see a few humans help guide a mother duck and her nine ducklings across a Save-On-Foods parking lot and a busy road in Chilliwack to get to the pond at Salish Park on Monday (May 31).
The ducks were all the way at the Yale Road entrance to the Save-On-Foods when an off-duty security guard and some other citizens tried to guide the duck in the direction of downtown’s biggest source of water.
There were a few dicey moments as the mother duck did not like the exiting customers from Save-On, but eventually they made it. Traffic stopped on First and they got across.
Getting off the curb onto First and then up a curb near the pond was no small feet for the newborns, but eventually they all made it down and up, and eventually into the water.
