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

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:
