Yeah, That's Going On The Blog

Do you see what I see? Take a "gander" at this picture and see if you can spot why I had to post it. Try to figure it out for a minute before I tell you.It's not exactly a gander. It's a duck. A female to be exact, probably with a nest of eggs somewhere. She is perfectly intact...except for the fact that she is dead and she is stuck in the car. Can you see her right there next to the license plate? Her head is hanging down, bill pointing to the ground. One of her wings is right there next to the license plate.

I don't even know what to say about the driver of this car other than what the freak is wrong with you? I can understand possibly not knowing that she is stuck in there, but how can you not know that you have hit a full grown mallard?

I was with my daughter and her friend when we saw this lovely display on a warm, sunny day. Kind of put a dark cloud over everything for the rest of the afternoon.


  1. its a good job you spotted it and didn't just jump in the car and drive off!!!

  2. That is so sad:(

    We were driving yesterday and a Mama goose had her duckings in the the middle of the 6 lane street!! I was having a heart attack! The mama was being very protective of them and leading them to the grassy median, and cars were going real slow and curving around her, the little fluffy yellow babies were trotting in a is sad that they have gotten so comfortable with humans that they are out in the streets like that, but comforting to see how all the traffic was being so careful of them:)

  3. OH! That is so bad! The poor, poor duck!

  4. Thank you for being the type of person who cares about something like this. We need more people like you, Kim.


If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. No need to point out my mistakes, I have family for that.
