lucky duck contest

In celebration of Independence Day we had a contest - and the lucky duck was released to the creek.  They are two months old now, and even though I've been bringing them food and water twice a day, they are still amazingly wild.  For their protection, that's a good thing.

I took the winner - the one I could catch - to the creek and released him yesterday.  Haven't seen the mom duck in the creek since these babies hatched, but the dad sure seemed like he recognized him, and led the way.
