Tidbit of the Day: Family of ducks hangs out on Chicago’s Clark Street

A funny thing happened right outside my window Saturday night: A family of ducks, probably from nearby North Pond, walked over to the corner of Clark Street and Arlington Place and just…hung out.

About a dozen folks from nearby bars gathered around the ducks. I started snapping photos, but Momma Duck got a bit nervous and started to gather up her ducklings, so I backed off.

Someone called Animal Control, but they didn’t come, so the ducks were ushered into a cardboard box and released back at the pond.

Anyway, here are some photos:
