You're probably more likely to see a floating body than waterfowl in the Los Angeles River. But things are improving.

The federal government declared it a "traditional navigable waterway" in 2010 and L.A. River Expeditions will take you for a boat trip this summer. The improvements haven't stopped an artist from making a little light of our favorite liquid jungle, though:

The art comes courtesy of guerrilla installers Calder Greenwood and "Wild Life", which have done their share of tongue-in-cheek projects in the mean streets of L.A. (See Greenwood's paper-mache surfer in the river here).

This delightful little duckie can be found near the Los Feliz Golf Course (at least while it lasts).

A passing cyclist observed the installation this week and said, "The world's a better place for it."
