For at least ten years already has a duck nest in the courtyard of the Glover Elementary School in Milton, Massachusetts. If mother duck walking with her cubs on the move, students see curious about and are excited to see, whether it is time, to guide the chicks to the water. Because that is, they must pass the building to get outside of the area to the water. This year was put the whole thing on video:
More than 500 students sat cross-legged in the hallway and on the playground for the annual duck walk. Many of their faces lit up when the mother and her 10 newly hatched ducklings waddled by. The entire episode was documented on video.
Principal Sheila Kukstis said in an interview that the walk is a tradition for the elder duck, as well.
“The mother knows where she’s going because she’s done it before,” she said.
