Twice a year, a mother duck in Seattle has to get her newly hatched ducklings from their birthplace to Salmon Bay. This is because the duck lays her eggs on Nathaniel Peters’ apartment balcony. So every April and June, with guidance from local wildlife rescue workers, Peters uses a duckling elevator made from a plastic bin and lowers the babies from the balcony to the sidewalk below. Once safely on the ground, the brood and their mom get a personal escort for the several block walk to Salmon Bay. This just happened for the second time this year, and the seventh time since Peters has lived in the apartment.
