Duck Rescue Sponsored by the Green Bay Duck Hunters Association Established 1958

Sponsored by the Green Bay Duck Hunters Association Established 1958

The “Duck Rescue” presentation is a tribute to the original “Duck Rescuers” Ted Thyrion and the late Milt Geyer who rescued from 1980 to 1998. .

.

Ted and Milt record of how many ducks they rescued for some of their years. Incubation continues today at the wildlife sanctuary for those eggs that do not hatch. .

.

The Green Bay Wildlife Sanctuary provides open water and food for ducks during the winter. Mike Reed from the Wildlife Sanctuary was looking for an organization to respond to the many duck rescue calls the Sanctuary would receive. The “Duck Rescue” was formed for that response.

Nest sites are called into “Duck Central” Joe Loehlein at 920-621-8950. Nest sites are usually found when homeowners are doing spring cleanup with raking leaves around bushes. This site is very typical with the nest tucked under a yew. The typical ground material is cedar wood chips (hides hen’s scent?) or stones that hold the heat of the sun. Nests are on east, south, or west sides of houses or garages.

When looking for a duck nest you may need to look real hard. The leaves and cedar offer a great place to hide! .

. This nest was rescued on July 18, 2008. The hen will lay 1-2 eggs each day. The eggs will take 26 days to hatch. Again notice how difficult it is to spot this nest.

Sometimes we learn about the duck family after the hatch. If seen from above this family would have easily been missed. .

. However, there are ducks that have not taken duck nest seminars! Here we have a mallard nest in a tree! Regardless of how she feels she is NOT a woodduck! She is still a mallard! There is a related true tale about another mallard nest that was dropping ducklings from a tree about 40 feet up! We also had a mallard nest on a sleeping bag on a 2 nd floor balcony.

When the nest has been “clutched” for 26-28 days some eggs will start to show cracks. The cracks indicate the eggs will hatch in 24-48 hours.

When the ducklings have been hatched it is time to gather the family. The first step is to grab the hen. The hen will attempt to defend her nest by “ biting” a rescuer’s hand. When she “bites” you grab her behind her neck and put her in a cage.

“ biting” a rescuer’s hand. When she “bites” you grab her behind her neck and put her in a cage.

If the hen can’t be grabbed she will need to be walked into a trap. In this case the hen and family are in the shrubs. The building is a barrier and for the hen so is the walkway. The technique is to walk the hen into the trap when a rescuer “slowly” walks through the shrubs. .

.

Once the hen is in the trap another rescuer would pull the string to lower the trap door. Notice the smaller metal cage next to the trap. The ducklings may not go into the trap with mama duck. So, after mama is in the large trap rescuers pick up each of the ducklings and place them in the trap. .
