Mari, My Mariana Mallard – YouTube

Found on the watery south side Talakaya, this young fledgling female Mariana Mallard was picked up roadside due to her inability to fly. She’s now recovering, growing up, getting used to her new surroundings and new ducks, and waiting for the day she’ll spread her wings and fly off to new adventures.

UPDATE:
Mari took flight in the early dawn hours on November 22.  She first circled our home then took off on her freedom journey.

Here is Mari and Taffy.  Taffy is my 3 yr. old muscovy female duck.  I absolutely adore her.♥
