Kookaburra and Duckling Friends

This baby six-week old kookaburra called Kookie and a tiny duckling have
struck up a friendship at the Seaview Wildlife Encounter, near Ryde in the
Isle of Wight. Kookie was saved by staff after they feared his parents would
kill him. And the duckling was rescued from one of the park’s aviaries
because he was thought too small to defend himself against larger birds.
Keepers took a chance and decided to see what would happen if they were put
together. The duckling instantly cuddled up under Kookie’s protective wing,
thinking he was his mum and Kookie didn’t seem to mind playing the caring
parent.
