Thanks to a reader for sending yesterday afternoon:

“A rare moment of cuteness near L’Enfant Plaza on 7th in front of Pizza Autentica.”

Keep your eyes peeled for street crossing escorts and email [email protected] when you do please!

    If I had a yard, I’d be so tempted to steal a couple of those.

        No they don’t. I’ve raised many a hatchery duckling/ chick/ gosling in my day. Hatched under warming lights, sold at 1 day old.
        I’m not *actually* going to steal any, btw. But if I did, they would be just fine.

    During nesting season City Wildlife’s “Duck Watch” volunteers monitor Mallard nests in DC parks, courtyards, and rooftops. Ideally, as soon as the ducklings hatch, mom will begin leading them to water. In cases where the ducklings are trapped, volunteers are available to help. You can learn more about Duck Watch and request assistance from volunteers at: http://citywildlife.org/programs/duck-watch/
