A mother duck and her ducklings visited the White House Wednesday, but their trip hit a snag.

The ducklings couldn't quite get over the concrete barrier and were stuck milling about outside.

A group of uniformed Secret Service agents saw the separation and went to the ducklings' aid. They lifted each duck through the fence.   
 
Visitors gave the agents a big round of applause afterward. 

The ducks were later seen resting in the bushes.
