saddest thing ever...

i'll let the pictures do the talking...










story: i was driving home (i was actually inside the gate of my complex) when i saw the ducks. i thought it was cute, so parked near by and took some pics. then the mom duck starts walking, with all the little chicks following, right over that grate. all but one fell through (as you can see). it went down to a sewer connection without any water, maybe a 3 foot drop. so i got out of my car and pulled the grate off and went down there to try to get the chicks. when i pulled the grate off, dirt fell down there and scared them and they scattered. but, i was able to get all but one back up top. the last one wouldn't move, and i wasn't gonna go down the sewer pipe much more without a flashlight. hopefully that chick will find it's way back. :sad:

That last picture is really sad w/ the female mallard looking down at her chicks. You are a good man for saving them.

Poor thing..... that's sad
Let's hope the mom gets reunited with her chicks soon.

Anyway, good job. I would do the same thing.

The chicks are actually very small. It's just the feathers that make them look bigger than the holes.
