Over the years, Mrs. Mallard and her eight ducklings have seen plenty of makeovers.
Usually, Nancy Schön’s iconic sculpture, located in Boston’s Public Garden and inspired
by Robert McCloskey’s 1942 Caldecott winning book, Make Way for Ducklings, can be seen in New England sports gear. The ducks have worn uniforms for the Bruins, the Red Sox, and the Patriots. They even get dressed for the holidays.
But earlier this month Mrs. Mallard got political. She and her brood were spotted wearing bright pink knit caps, presumably in support of the Women’s March that took place in D.C. and in cities (including Boston) all over the world on January 21, 2017.
