Mallard ducklings jump at Irish university building, video


This video says about itself:

Ducklings take leap of faith on UCD campus

6 May 2014

On my way through University College Dublin campus I came across a Mother duck with her ducklings and they brightened up my day. Make sure you watch this until the end!

Mandarin duck and wood duck ducklings are known for jumping out of tree nests shortly after hatching. I did not know yet about mallard ducklings like in this video.

  1. Might look dangerous, but the ducklings’ low body mass index allows them to make a jump like this without incurring any injury. It’s falling out of high trees and landing on the ground that usually doesn’t end well for chicks.

    Nice video, really made my day!
