Why did the ducks cross the road?

So last week a family of ducks decided to take a trip around Tel Aviv… They started the day walking around the streets (check out the pictures by David Mastey, pictures above); and ended spending the night camping at Park Hayarkon (check out the picture by Maria Volovik). Do you have any more pictures of the geese? Post them in the group, we’d love to see them!
