Presidential Mallard

2 posts in this topic

From the Sunday Telegraph

"SECURITY is tight in front of the White House for a new resident - a duck sitting on nine eggs she laid at the foot of a sapling last week.

The mallard hen chose for her nest a heap of fresh mulch on the footpath outside the heavily guarded entrance of the Treasury Department, next door to the presidential residence.

Secret service officers have put up metal stanchions around the tree to shield the incubating bird from passers-by.

The fowl's reputation has grown, and it was featured on a national morning television show on Friday.

Treasury staff have dubbed the bird "T-bill", "Duck Cheney" and "Quacks Reform", Treasury spokesman Rob Nichols said.

The duck has been provided with a water bowl and seems oblivious to all the attention.

The eggs are expected to hatch the last week of April, at which time the duck will be moved nearer water."
