We always know spring is upon us here at Nat Geo headquarters when this duck shows up in the courtyard pond. She comes back year after year, usually with her mate, and they travel between NG headquarters and Farragut Square — just a couple of little ducks in the big city. But this year, she came with new friends! Babies!! So, if you need a little afternoon pick-me-up… here are some adorable little ducklings. We even built them a little ramp to help them get in the “pond” …although, as you can see in this video, these duckies don’t need no stinkin’ ramp!

Let’s just say, I’m really excited about our new neighboors.
