Ducks on a Wave

the other day i was down at lake harriet and it was super windy and this group of maybe 10 little baby ducks were crashing up against the shore. the momma duck was right there, too, paddling around in the high waves looking confused and maybe a little desperate. literally 25 people gathered round to help. i watched on and off for maybe 30 minutes as the mob shuffled slowly down the shore, shouting words of encouragement and ferrying the ducklings back to the water when a wave would wash them onto shore. it was a crazy scene. there's a thesis-worthy social commentary in there somewhere.
