Huey, Dewey and Phyllis

Huey, Dewey and Phyllis are orphaned mallards.

They were orphaned when they were only a day old and their mother was walking them through a suburban neighborhood from her nest site to a pond. The baby mallards fell down through a storm sewer grate, but their mom wasn’t even aware that she had lost three of her brood and she kept on walking! Fortunately, a caring person saw what happened and called the WHS Wildlife Rehabilitation Center for help. One of our trained volunteer wildlife rescuers saved Huey, Dewey and Phyllis and brought them to the Center for help. We raised them here together with several other orphaned mallards until they had grown to nearly adult-size. Here they are being released into a rural pond with wonderful duck habitat: happy day!
