Now that spring is here, it's time for the annual tradition of rounding up ducklings and helping them get to where they need to go.

Since ducks nest in the same place year after year, some are hatched in places that baby ducklings can't fly out of – especially courtyards.

In Roseville, one mallard mother had to be led from an interior courtyard through the halls of the Northeast Metro 916 building to get outside. A worker there posted video of them waddling through the halls (see above).

Also recently, in Ceder Rapids, Iowa, officers found a nest of ducklings in an enclosed courtyard and had to help them lead through the John. F. Kennedy High School.

It's also been known to happen in Fergus Falls, Plymouth, and St. Paul.
