A wandering family of ducks gets an escort home
A mother duck and her 13 babies wandered away from the ponds Monday at the National Museum of the American Indian and headed west along Independence Avenue under the watchful eyes of museum employees. The ducklings were gathered into a bucket at the National Air & Space Museum and returned to the pond, with the mother following and squawking along the way.

Camper carries the ducklings home in a bucket with the mother duck at his side.
