What's wrong with the Mallard?


Recommended Posts

Saw this duck in a retention pond in a conservation site today. She was alone, there were no other ducks of any kind around.  A bit of research and Angel Wings popped up.  It fits physically, but Idk, any thoughts?  I have more pics if they are needed.

I did notify the site manager of her predicament and he was going to have a look and call DNR/conservation officer.  The pond has rather deep sides and they were fully overgrown.  I was afraid that if she couldn't fly properly, she'd just be stuck there.  I guess my confusion collects around how did she get there.  There is a park with a lake a few miles from there with a full contingent of domestic ducks and geese.  Hopefully they will get her out, get her some help and then resettle her at the lake.
