Collaborative effort saves ducklings from Downers Grove sewer
DOWNERS GROVE – Following their mother across Parker Avenue this week, eight baby ducks fell one, right after the other, into a storm drain.
"They all huddled very close to their mother, and they just fell in," said Mary Loye, a Downers Grove resident and volunteer with the Chicago Bird Collision Monitors who helped fish the birds from the sewer Wednesday. "It does happen pretty often."
Loye said the birds were likely following their mother across the street toward the pond shortly after hatching. She estimated the birds were a day or two old.
