Duck Family Gets Escorted to Pond

by Holy Cuteness on March 1, 2013

A mother duck and her nine ducklings were spotted in the park across from the World Bank building on Pennsylvania Avenue.

A crowd gathered. One woman called the police and the humane society. They didn’t show up and the ducks were getting restless, trying to run out into the street.

The crowd decided to take action and a procession was started at the National Mall.

A group created a corridor and held up traffic so the family could cross the street.

Along the way three policemen came and held up traffic on Constitution Avenue.

Pond in sight!

The ducklings were a little hesistant at first.

But eventually they took the splash.

And all was well again in Washington, D.C.

And Now, a Burrito Owl

by Holy Cuteness on January 29, 2013

A female Nothern saw-whet owl at the University of Minnesota Raptor Center’s clinic is wrapped in a specially designed wrap to make it easier to weigh her.

Since the beginning of October 2012, the clinic has admitted 15 Northern saw-whet owls. The majority of them suffered traumatic injuries from colliding with objects such as windows. Head and internal trauma were common injuries, but the bird pictured here suffered from a fractured pelvis. This adult female saw-whet was a restless patient, but after about two weeks of cage rest and one week of exercise, her energies were once again put into surviving life in the wild.
