Random YouTubery: Quack Thinkin'!

Springtime in Spokane, Washington: It may be a time for rebirth, but Joel Armstrong noticed danger below his second-floor office window—a nest full of day-old hatchlings crawling around their mother on the ledge. When she flew down to the sidewalk, the ducklings, unable to fly, faced the possibility of a very hard landing. So Armstrong lent a hand, by catching some of the hatchlings as they jumped from the ledge [video of Armstrong catching ducklings]—one…two…three…four—and delivering them to their very anxious mother. Others he got with a ladder, and then off they went in search of water. Armstrong guided them right through the middle of a parade route. Before long, they got to their destination—the river—and Armstrong got himself a new nickname: The Duck Man. Mike Gracia, The Associated Press.
