Fortunately, in the weeks that followed, the duckling kept growing up under Pyrah's watchful care. Little could she have guessed, however, that he would soon step in to play the role of savior himself to another helpless baby bird. But that's exactly what he did.
On Sunday, Pyrah was called upon to rescued one more duckling. This one, just hours old, was left as the sole survivor after her mother and all her siblings were killed by a group of children. Although she was so young, the baby seemed nevertheless traumatized by the horror she had witnessed.
"I put the new duckling in an incubator, but I thought she was going to die," Pyrah told The Dodo. "She kept crying and crying, for hours. I thought she shouldn't be alone, so I took her out and put her with the other duckling. I was worried at first, since ducklings can be quite unfriendly to strangers, but they just fell asleep together."
