Every Spring Lovely Mom Duck Takes Cute Tiny Ducklings To Visit Nursing Home Inhabitants

Residents and employees at the MM Ewing Continuing Care Center witnessed the heartwarming moment a mama duck hatched new ducklings and took a tour of the facility.
When we think of cute animals, cats or dogs, or perhaps even hamsters are the first to pop into our heads. However, we often forget that other animals get attached to humans too, like this mommy duck who visits the same hospital every single year to hatch a new family. Every spring for multiple years now, the MM Ewing Continuing Care Center in Canandaigua in upstate New York has been a nesting home to a certain mother duck. She is punctual to arrive each year and leaves with her newborn ducklings after taking a tour around the facility, saying hello to all of its residents before she bids farewell to them for the rest of the year.

This particular spring, the employees at the MM Ewing Continuing Care Center took to the official Thompson Health (the company that owns the facility) Facebook pageto share the delightful and absolutely adorable story. They wrote: Every year, mama follows the same path. Facility Services associates - one of whom said, "She has us trained" - have old signage to gently guide her and her babies in case they look like they're about to get sidetracked. They head to the light from an open door at the end of the corridor.

The page also posted photos of the mama duck with the newest additions to her family. The first picture featured mama duck in a corridor followed by a trail of her ducklings. The second image displayed a facility employee holding the door open for the cute duck family as they outside the building into the open field that surrounds it. The third and fourth photos showed mommy and ducklings walking through a field of thick grass. Finally, the last photo showed a rather delighted resident watching the family make their way through the facility.

While this amazing sight is usually reserved just for the facility's residents, this year, the internet was part of the heartwarming moment as well. Many Facebook users took to the comments section of the Facebook post to let Thompson Health know that the photos had made their day. Jenifer Gray Cheney commented: I can’t even stand how cute this is! If this is annual, she must realize it’s a safe place. Marilou Baker added: It's wonderful to see a mama take care of her children. God bless and also kudos for the door holder. Loreta Buchanan stated: Thank you for sharing. That is so precious. Mrs. Duck is very smart and wise [for] protecting her young.
