Driving down busy Warm Springs Avenue this morning, long lines of traffic in both directions stopped and waited patiently as a couple of ducks made their way across the road. The green-headed mallard followed the brown-speckled female as the couple slowly crossed the road, taking tiny, precise steps. And then the traffic resumed, and the ducks headed off toward the nearby Boise River.
