Duck courtship behaviour video


The Cornell Lab of Ornithology in the USA says about this 21 January 2015 video:

Even in the dead of winter, ducks provide us with some of the first signs of spring as they begin picking mates for the upcoming breeding season. The Macaulay Library dug into the video archives to put together this mash-up of interesting duck courtship behaviors, many of which are happening right now on ponds and lakes.
