At a small animal park, one employee always keeps an eye out for duck eggs. They try to prevent the animals from laying eggs and successfully hatching them there, as the drop-off in the pond is usually too extreme for the babies and they end up drowning. They are also killed by the other adult ducks and predators in the park. It’s just not a good place for them to be born. So when he came across a little duckling that was having trouble hatching from his shell, he knew he would have to help him. Otherwise, the little duck wouldn’t have survived the night.
In many cases, if you see a baby bird, it’s probably safer to let it be. Many people aren’t properly equipped to raise a frail little baby.
