Mallard hen and ducklings led to safety


This afternoon, a mallard hen and her newly hatched ducklings were found in a parking lot on the Google compound in Mountain View. Davis, a member of the Google family called WES for help. 

With guidance from our experts and help from a couple of other concerned Googlers, the ducklings were carefully collected into a milk crate.



Then, the team started a slow walk toward Permanente Creek - just a couple of blocks away. The hen followed, nervously.


Finally, they reached the creek! 

Following our direction, Davis gently dumped the ducklings out - all at once, and backed away. The hen quickly gathered their attention and led them into the stream and toward the wetlands.



THANK YOU DAVIS! 
THANK YOU AJAI! 
THANK YOU RUSSELL!
THANK YOU NICE, QUIET GOOGLER W/BEARD!
