Howard is a resident duck at Wildlife Images rehabilitation and education center. He was brought to the center when he was still small and it soon became apparent he suffered from angel wing, a serious health problem that renders the affected bird flightless. It develops in ducklings suffering from a poor diet. Feeding bread to ducks is one of the main causes. Corn, lettuce (and other greens), birdseed, oats and duck pellets are all good alternatives to feeding bread to ducks.
