Ramona the duck returns to downtown Kingston restaurant to raise ducklings

Watch here as Ramona, the mother duck, tried to convince her ducklings to jump from a nest she made in a planter, about seven feet from the ground on a downtown restaurant's patio.


A mallard duck has returned to a downtown Kingston restaurant to raise its ducklings this year.

The mother duck chose to nest in a planter mounted on the wall of Northside espresso + kitchen, a restaurant on Princess Street, which is located about 750 metres from the Lake Ontario shore.

The owners of the restaurant named the mallard Ramona and say she nested in the same flower pot last year.

The flower box where the duck made its temporary home is about seven feet above the eatery’s patio.

On Wednesday, Ramona spent part of the morning coaxing her ducklings to jump to the ground for the journey to the lake.

Luckily, Northside employees were on hand to watch the ducklings as they fell on a soft blanket laid out to cushion their fall.
