Workers from Architect of the Capitol took to Twitter Monday afternoon to show how they solved a duckling problem.

The "Capitol Reflecting Pool has been a popular attraction for ducks and humans," they said on Twitter, showing off their newly constructed duck ramp.

The appropriately labeled ramp awed many on Twitter, but it wasn't until the ducklings successfully began using it that the video took off.

The Architect of the Capitol said they consulted with City Wildlife before holding a "design charrette to determine the best ramp design to allow ducks of all ages to enter and exit the pool easily over the existing limestone curb."
