As the photos in this post show, there are a lot of mallard ducks that live on a ledge underneath the offices of a bank in Spokane, Washington. As one might expect, they fall from this ledge frequently. However, this is not a problem because Joel Armstrong is usually there to catch them.
To the mother duck, positioning her nest 15 feet above street level must have seemed like an ideal way of protecting her brood from predators.The only problem was how to get the ducklings back to the (very hard) ground and on to water in one piece once they were hatched.
Joel Armstrong, a bank official also known as ‘Duck Man’. With skills an England goalkeeper could only dream of, Mr Armstrong caught all five ducklings in quick succession as they tumbled from their nest high above the concrete pavement.
