Make Way for Ducklings in Washington, DC [VIDEO]

from Wildlife Promise

A wonderful children’s classic, Make Way for Ducklings, tells the story of a family of mallard ducks who make their home in Boston and face some challenges dealing with Boston traffic. This video, taken during the lunch hour on March 22, shows caring citizens helping a momma mallard and her chicks cross busy Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. It’s always heartwarming to know that people want to help wildlife in whatever way they can.
