Things R Just Ducky At Brown University

1507287_543009252483915_3053624763672250089_oIt seems a mama duck decided to hoist herself up onto a large flower pot by the science library on the Brown University campus in Providence, RI. (Time to download some kids.) Wednesday, they hatched! Of course, they have their own FB page…and U can read more at the Providence Journal. (Or “ProJo” in the local vernacular.)

    Yea!😘 to everyone who made sure this mama and her babies were kept safe! Like Peanutcat I was grinning through the whole video. I love how they made sure the family made it to water. That was certainly a long walk for those ducklings! 😊
