The downtown duck hero

Carol sends a batch of photos of a mallard duck who built a nest on a second storey ledge in downtown Spokane and hatched her brood there. The link goes to a story -- with the photos in a slideshow -- about a man named Joel Armstrong who took them all under his wing and helped Mama Mallard get her ducklings to the Spokane river.
