Mama duck makes annual waddle through a Michigan Elementary School with ducklings

It happens every spring at Village Elementary School in Hartland Michigan. A mama duck lays her eggs in the school’s courtyard. The teachers and staff named her Vanessa, and she has been visiting the school for the past 13 years. When the baby ducks are ready to swim, Vanessa takes her new family on a waddle through the school to the nearby pond.
