Duck Builds Nest Outside Swanky Washington Hotel

Duck Nests In Planter Near Front Door

Hotel officials said this is the second consecutive year the duck has built her
nest outside the ritzy hotel.

The hotel's concierge is said to be looking after the fowl and her soon-to-be brood. Hotel officials said there are 11 eggs in the nest.
