I agree with Karen. I saw a news story about it yesterday on CBS This Morning with video of the duck. In one section, it was standing on the edge of the pond and I could see what appeared to be a leg band (on its right leg). The enthusiasm it stirred among the newscasters was great to see, with them saying "that's something I'd go to see" ... giving them a window into our birding world. Patty McLeanAtlanta GA Sent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone
