West Seattle scene: Feathered pedestrians on Admiral Way


Thanks to Marco for sharing the scene from Admiral Way, when a mallard mom and ducklings got some help making it across the street just west of 42nd SW. Marco adds, “Props to the guy who was keeping them safe in traffic!” A closer look:


(We can’t quite guess where mom was headed – Hiawatha? – or coming from, for that matter – can you?)

     Know how you know if a Duck is doing Crossfit? Because (S)he we won’t stop quacking about it.

     But seriously, clearly they just left the cLeaners. and how long has that replacement L been on back order? I drive by daily and keep asking myslelf “What’s a Ceaners”?

    Why did the duck cross the road?

    To get some “Jack in the Quack”

    But as WSB asked…where the heck were they going or coming from, the wading pool at the park???

    Well that explains the “don’t feed the ducks” sign at Jefferson square Safeway, glad they got some help across, wondering to where there from, are they migratory?

    Momma and her ducklings are early for the Hiawatha Wading Pool – it doesn’t open this year until June, 29, 2016.

Sorry, comment time is over.
