VIDEO: Wood Duck Hen and Ducklings
Copyright © Lewis Scharpf
While visiting the Wood Duck Heritage Preserve and Siddique Nature Center,
I made this little video of a female Wood Duck supervising the activities of her four ducklings.
Among the interesting views, was the hen gently removing from her back, one of her ducklings which had hopped aboard for a ride.
The little one, however, promptly hopped right back upon the hen and continued its ride!
For best viewing quality, click on the little notched wheel at the bottom of the video and set to 1080p(HD).
