7 lucky ducks

After watching Ice Age 3 in McKinleyville we decided to ride to the beach. We didn't get far on the Hammond Trail before noticing 7 ducklings alone on the path.

We followed them for 30 minutes before they turned into a residential area and quickly drew the interest of a number of cats.

I acted quickly and got a cardboard box from a nearby house.

40 minutes of phone calls later, these lucky ducks got a ride on my bike to meet some wildlife rescue people. These ducks wouldn't have lasted 5 minutes with those cats!

The main plot of Ice Age 3 follows Sid the Sloth as he tries to rescue 3 T-Rex babies. A strange coincidence indeed.
