Cute Animal Alert: See Tiny Ducklings Learn to Swim (Video)

Watch this brood test the waters of the Potomac.

Boston has its ducks in the Public Garden, and Memphis has its ducks in the fountain of the Peabody Hotel. Washington has plenty of ducks, too, as well as geese—and since this is spring that also means a lot of ducklings and goslings. They can be found in all kinds of unlikely places—a city park, your back yard, the flower bed of an office building—but one of the best places to spot the adorable little balls of fluff is on the Potomac River, especially up river near Georgetown.

When you spot them it’s recommended to stop and stare, as we did this morning at the Georgetown Waterfront Park. The video is guaranteed to cheer you up on this dreary day.
