Storyline

There are some 120 species of duck, representing a wide variety of shapes, sizes and behaviors. Some are noisy and gregarious, others shy and elusive. They are familiar animals we think we know. But most of us don't really know these phenomenal, sophisticated creatures at all. This program follows a wood duck family as a male and female create a bond, migrate together across thousands of miles, nurture and protect a brood of chicks, then come full circle as they head to their wintering grounds Written by Anonymous

I found this one on Netflix streaming movies.

It is narrated by Paul Giamatti, and his narration style is just right for this sort of thing.

The film starts with a female wood duck and her newly hatched ducklings. Did you know she makes a nest in the hollow of an old oak tree, some 70 feet above the forest floor? When the ducklings are just a day old, the mother calls for them in nearby pond, and one by one each duckling climbs up to the opening, and jumps out, floating down into the cushion of the leaves below, then waddling to the pond.

The film then shows a number of different duck species, what their feeding habits are, what their courtship habits are, their migration habits, and again their mating habits.

The film ends where it began, a wood duck mating, then finding a nesting spot, building her nest, hatching the ducklings, and yet another year having them jump out to the forest below.

The photography is simply excellent. A really nice DUCKumentary.
