What is not described is the macabre springtime scenario that each year plays out when mating pairs of mallards happily wander the lovely grounds of the 1001 Page Mill Road site and then attempt, individually, in pairs and with their ducklings, to cross Hanover Street to reach 1501 Page Mill Road, HP labs' lawns. These crossings most often end in tragedy, as this is an extremely busy intersection.
