The Metropolitan Museum of Art has shut down its business due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, it now houses a duck family in the museum’s rooftop.
A duck has found its way on top of the museum’s rooftop and decided it was a great nesting spot for her and her babies. The museum staff members are currently keeping an eye out for their new feathered buddy.
They will receive some help from the New York City’s Urban Park Rangers to assist transportation to Central Park when the duck and her ducklings are ready.
In the meantime, the museum is asking for name suggestions for the ducks. One user suggested, “James *Mallard* William Turner,” while another wrote, “Met-ilda.”
