A mama duck was having some problems with her GPS on Saturday and nearly guided the family onto Riverside Drive.
But a kind group of humans redirected the family just in time. “This duck and her ducklings were about to cross West 79th Street and Riverside Drive into traffic when a group of people intervened and escorted them to safety,” wrote Sunny Mindel, who sent the photo above.

It’s a familiar scene for anyone who’s read the children’s book Make Way for Ducklings.
Happy Mother’s Day to this duck and all the moms out there!
