Ducks bring a smile to my face every single time. We always had ducks and sometimes we even had ducklings in a pen inside with a lamp above them to keep them warm, until they were old enough to join the other ducks.
I love ducks. Watching them makes me happy.
Last night the video available in the link below made the news. Crossing a four-lane highway (freeway) in Toronto rush-hour traffic, was the route mama duck took. It was heart-stopping to watch, and I don’t think I took a breath the entire video.
A mother and at least eight ducklings took a perilous trip across Highway 407 Wednesday morning, crossing four lanes as traffic whizzed by…..
As cars and trucks sped by, turbulent air sent some of the transponder-free ducklings flying in various directions, but each time they managed to quickly regroup — and all apparently made it across safely.
Take the time to watch the video…it is amazing.
Edit: Link from Sunday K for those in the US to watch the video here.
