Gift of Donna Tisdale

Stuffed animal toy. This duck is made of white (although now mostly brown from dirt) plush, with orange fabric beak and feet, and plastic eyes, holding a pink (faded) orb that may have been meant to be an Easter egg. There is no tag attached. This artifact was found on Morning Star Ranch, a ranch in the town of Boulevard in San Diego County, two miles north of the California/Mexico border. Donna Tisdale, the owner of the ranch, retrieved this object as one of many items that people crossing the border through her ranch have left behind. In the donor file is a description of the ranch and the border crossers, as well as thoughts on immigration, written by Tisdale.
