Rhonda and the kids got this amazing photograph of a mama duck and her babies on the day of the Lilac Parade. The mother had made her nest on the roof overlooking the entrance to a downtown business. One by one, the ducks jumped to the ground and then made a heroic walk through the crowds and to the river.

The Spokesman-Review captured the same scene HERE.

Disclosure: I photoshopped the lower right hand corner of the picture to remove a camera strap that had fallen in front of the lens.

Cool! One of my sons keep ducks. They come running when we feed the chickens. I LOVE how they waddle!!!

Yeah, I'm not very sentimental when it comes to animals, but baby birds always make me say, "Aaaaahhh," especially baby quail.
