Recently watched "An Original Duckumentary" about ducks. We take them for granted since we see
them so often but they are an amazing species. Here's a small clip of baby wood ducks after they
hatch and how they have to come down to their mother.

That is a very cute video! I never saw baby wood ducks leave the nest.

I wish that somebody would film the adult wood ducks entering the nest. They enter at break-neck speed (about 45 mph) and virtually stop on a dime (six or eight inches). Perhaps the baby ducks were practicing that stop?
