Apparently the same Duck Mama is sitting upon the nest at the same spot as last year. So, when they hatch again, will Mr. Armstrong again ready himself beneath the awning and prior point of leaping ducklings? The tension will mount for Mr. Armstrong as the time nears…July perhaps? Await the media frenzy in small town Spokane.
“Last year, mama took her ducklings on their first trip to the river. But employees feared the 10-foot leap would be deadly. A loan officer caught them as they jumped, then gathered the brood in a box and walked to Riverfront Park with mama close by.”

Snopes reported on the veracity of the story last year and the video footage of the launch(es) is cool.
