Newly-hatched Treasury Ducklings to Get New Home

WASHINGTON - It's moving day for the ducklings that hatched yesterday in a nest outside the U.S. Treasury Building. Officials are expected to take them to one of the city's parks.
The Secret Service has been watching over the mother duck since she unexpectedly made a nest there this spring -- near the White House. They've been protecting her from tourists who stopped to snap pictures.
The nest is in a mulch pile around a tree at the building's main entrance.
Treasury workers have given the mother various names, including "T-Bill" and "Duck Cheney."
