Heck No, I Won’t Go

Sorry to spoil your whole “Free Willy” moment here, lady, but do you have any idea how filthy that ocean is? Fish use it for a toilet, for Pete’s sake! You might get a seal to fall for that, but we penguins have higher standards, thank you…

And So It Begins

The epic journey of young, defiant dabblers. The quest of all quirky quackers. The battle cry of  brave, budding bread crumb stealers everywhere. (Sing it now) …”Two little ducks, went out one day,

Over the hills and far away… “


“Mother duck said, “Quack, quack, quack, quack! … But none of her baby ducks came back.”

So what really happened here? One evening not long ago, a French fella was hanging around the French riviera when a seagull suddenly stole his lightweight Go Pro camera. After following the bird, the crafty Frenchman was able to scale castle walls, retrieve the camera, and publish the footage. Where it was seen and sent in by Fluffaholic.

A Small Miracle

When YouTube user kandwarf rescued an injured hummingbird, he kept a video record of the recovery, as he nursed her with meals of crushed bugs and sugar water and helped her regain her flying skills. Then “when she thought she was ready to leave,” he writes, “she flew off to her favorite patch of the back yard, and her instincts instantly kicked in, and now she’s just like all the other hummingbirds.”

Holy Imprinting!

Discovery News is reporting some awesome interspecies duckling/pup action:

According to Sara Hallager, a bird biologist at the National Zoo; “All baby birds, when they’re born, the first thing they see, which is usually the same species, is what they imprint on.”

So how did this duckling duo end up thinking a dog was their parent? It turns out it wasn’t part of the original plan when Frances Marsh, 25, and her family bought two two-day-old ducklings at a local garden center near their home in Atlantic Beach, N.C.

Yogi, the family’s 5-year-old corgi, was in the car that day and was instantly fascinated by the family’s purchase.

“They were in a little box. He just leaned his head over and licked them,” Marsh said.

Ever since, the ducklings, Biggie and ‘Pac, have chosen to follow Yogi, as if he were their mother.
