Duckling Rescue

Fingerprint Friday

There is a song by Steven Curtis Chapman that says:

I can see the fingerprints of God
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of God
And I know its true
You're a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you're covered with the fingerprints of God

So look around you and see where YOU can see God's fingerprints. Is it in nature? Kids? Animals? Where do you see them?

12 little ducklings and their mommy

The pictures are mine, but here's an abbrieviated exerpt from our local paper:

"Twenty excited kids, wielding large sheets of construction paper, lined up with military precision to form a safety corridor.

Operation objective: Herd a mother duck and her 12 babies out of the Elementary’s enclosed courtyard, through the classroom, down the school halls, across a busy road, and into [the] Lake....

It’s not the first rescue operation undertaken at [the] Elementary. In 1995 the school successfully managed the same situation with a mother duck and her nine babies....

The mother and her downy babies waddled speedily through the classroom and down the halls. They navigated the human corridor across the parking lot.

Police Const. and his patrol car, lights flashing, held back traffic as the procession crossed [the] Road.

It was literally all downhill from the moment they hit [the] Park. Mama blazed a trail down the paths and through the high grass, babies stumbling and tumbling behind her...."

How sweet is that?? Just curious - did the duck build her next in the courtyard, or were she & her eggs rescued by the school some other way?

Oh how cute! Love all the little ducklings.

The duck built her nest in the courtyard and the thought is that maybe she was one of the earlier ducklings that had hatched there, but I don't know how long ducks live.
