I visited the lake to check up on Bitey and Neo this afternoon and noticed all of Cinnamon's boyfriends by the boat dock--but no Cinnamon.
Later, I came back and found all her boyfriends where I usually see her this time of day, but, still, no Cinnamon. I looked up and down everywhere and found not even a feather of her. There is a lot of brush there, though, so she could have been stashed anywhere around there. Or, she could be sitting on a nest. I did hear a nearby hissing when I passed by a certain bush near where I usually see her. But, that could have been a human or even another duck on a nest. I looked through the bushes and still found no sign of her.
I've never seen this happen before.
I did finally find Oreo among all the other boyfriends. They, then, all swam together around and around. Usually, when they're with Cinnamon, they root around along the shore. But, not tonight. They just swam around.
Bitey is doing fine, by the way. And, I thought I saw Neo pull his wing into a normal position for a second. He's hanging out with Indy who bullies around Bitey. Later, Indy, his brother, and Neo all went to this one area, but some people fishing threw rocks at him. Indy and his brother flew off, but Neo was having a hard time getting away and I think he might have gotten hit. :(
