Ducklings jump from balcony, video


This 30 March 2016 video is about mallard ducklings. Mallards sometimes nest in unexpected places; like on a balcony of a house in this case.

The house owner did not mind, and had even provided a mattress for a soft landing for the ducklings. However, they did not use the mattress. The ducklings jumped a few meters down to a pebbly surface to follow their mother. All ducklings reached the water safely.

Miranda Langeslag from the Netherlands made this video.

This reminds me a bit of mandarin ducks, which often nest in trees. Mandarin ducklings then have to jump from the nest in the tree.
