There is a cute, friendly female mallard at Lake Murray (in San Diego) with what looks like a fishing hook in her leg/foot. I tried to catch her, but she got suspicious of me and went across the lake. She seems mostly OK, just limping. I am not sure if the hook can be removed without a vet.
I originally thought it was Flycatcher, but she's doing just fine.
Also, all three "Fish Food" ducklings are doing well, too.

I thought she would be a boy with her green bill. There's another female duck that I thought might be a male, but she is definitely a female and starting to flirt.
Several ruddy ducklings:
The pretty female gadwall:
And, a first for me, a common loon:
The killdeer were nowhere to be seen, but I heard at least 2, one near where George likes to hide and another near the ballfields.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?!
