I didn't know they nest in trees! Sounds like the ducklings are resourceful little guys. They must bounce pretty well, too! Thanks for posting to #featheredfriends ❤️ !Tip

I had to read it twice... those little guys are durable.. lol

I occasionally have wood ducks that nest in the trees around the spring. I thought they were unique, and did not know there were other ducks that did that, too! It is so funny to see a duck sitting high up in a tree!

Howdy sir karbon! They drop out of the nest after one day? Dang, that's getting a fast start! Very interesting and I see they like the cold weather.
