Duck Watching Downtown

Last night I went duck watching in Downtown Pittsburgh.

It’s easy to identify the large duck. Look closely and you’ll see he has company, a mallard in the foreground.

Rubber ducky is huge!  Here he’s about to go under the Ft. Duquesne Bridge.

Read more about the rubber duck and see photos and videos of his debut at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, KDKA and Pittsburgh Magazine.

See him for yourself on the Allegheny River near the Point.  He’ll be watching Downtown until (approximately) October 20.

    I had such fun watching the duck arrive from my office window. I couldn’t see it until after it was under the Fort Duquesne Bridge, but, as it made its way down the Ohio and past the Point, I was watching TWO live feeds from local tv stations. I posted the below photo during the arrival party and one of the comments was “Squeak!!” :)
