Biking up Pennsylvania Ave yesterday morning, I saw that a cop had stopped traffic in front of Freedom Plaza to let a family of ducks cross the street. Traffic in both directions stopped to let the mother duck and the ducklings cross. After they made it to the curb, they needed some help getting up onto the sidewalk. The police officer and the girl I’m assuming is his daughter gave them a boost while the mother duck quacked at passers-by.
Ed. Note: Pennsylvania Ave appears to be a popular duckling thoroughfare. Back in March we saw some video of an earlier crossing.
