The ducks of Champlin take a hike

Can you take a second helping of baby ducks?

A week ago, the annual parade of a duck and her babies from her winter home in the courtyard of a school in Oregon pinned the Oh-For-Cute-O-Meter.

MPR’s Tom Weber tips us off to this event at Jackson Middle School in Champlin yesterday, where a similar interior garden was done playing host to a snowbird.

“Ducks, Bob!” Tom messaged, which in Weberspeak means “nobody’s day ever got worse because it started by watching a parade of baby ducks.

  • I remember doing this one year in middle school in Northeast Minneapolis. It was quite a trip guiding them the half mile or so it was to the nearest lake in the area.
