It’s been a time for ducks lately: there are four or five that come around the neighborhood and stop under the bird feeder; there was a mama and her ducklings I got the Highway Patrol to rescue from the side of the freeway earlier this week; and now there’s this delightful one-minute video about Nibbles the duck waiting for his human friend to return from school.

I want a duck to wait for me and be my special friend!
