I am reaching out on behalf of the Wild Bird Fund to ask if anyone has seen any flocks of Ruddy Ducks in the past few days? WBF has a Ruddy that had been attacked by a dog in Central Park, but now, after a few weeks of recovery from the puncture wounds, is ready for release. But now the Ruddy Ducks are gone from CP!
Perhaps this will convince the politically well-connected but thoroughly feckless NYC Audubon to, at least,get the leash law enforced in the parks.
BTW, in a walk in Central Park Monday afternoon around 4:30 we saw two unleashed dogs running around the Pinetum, their owners many feet away.
