An Original Duckumentary

Ducks are true originals. They waddle, glide, dive, and dabble, and their feathers shimmer with dazzling hues, brilliant iridescence, and come in every color of the rainbow. There are more than 120 different species of ducks in all, a fantastical group of complex characters with names to match - Buffleheads, Canvasbacks, Pintails, Shovelers, Widgeons, and Woodies.

Ducks are born knowing how to survive - how to swim, what to eat, how to find it, and where to fly in the winter. They must make it through a gauntlet of hungry predators, just waiting for a tasty little duckling to swim by. Even when grown, most ducks are still small enough to be vulnerable, but in the end, ducks have a talent for survival, and life stories filled with personality and charm.

Take to the skies with a flock of green-winged teal. Watch Wood ducks raise a family. Learn why Goldeneyes head north in the winter. Jump into South American rapids with Torrent ducks. Meet some Redhead ducklings and their foster mother. Dive with little Ruddies and admire their enormous feet.

Each bird is more fun than the last, and will leave you wanting more.

I needed a replacement for David Attenboroughs Private Life of Plants, which is unavailable on DVD in this country. I believe I have found it.

This was such an enjoyable film! Everyone in my family, from age 5 to age 58, loved it! The cinematography is stunning and the information presented was truly fascinating. If you are a nature lover or a bird lover this is such an enjoyable hour. Weve already watched it multiple times. Thanks, PBS, for making such wonderful nature shows!

Not that great
Review by Emme on 07/17/20 review stating Not that great
Kind of boring. Need more examples, more animals. Too much time with not very interesting speakers. Hint: comb your hair, youre on camera. Would not buy this again. OK to borrow from library though. I expect a better quality of production from PBS. It has the look of something (anything?) rushed to production.

FASCINATING LOOK AT THE WHITE STALLIONS
Review by Dagmar on 07/17/20 review stating FASCINATING LOOK AT THE WHITE STALLIONS
This is a fascinating look into the origin, history, life, training, and perpetuation of this magnificent species of stallions. I love all animals, but am not necessarily a horse freak, but I truly loved this video and it showed me a lot of surprising info about these animals. Well worth the price and well worth watching

Who says that animals cant show love ?
Review by Pete on 07/17/20 review stating Who says that animals cant show love ?
This video reminds me of when I was a young kid with a pet white rat. Our family dog hated the field rats that were around and would kill them on sight. With her, he wasnt aggressive in the least. He was more curious and playful.

Wonderful science
Review by Neut on 07/17/20 review stating Wonderful science
Temple Grandin and Marc Beckoff are terrific. Interesting monkey researcher, too. But, be warned, the description in the paper catalog says the animal couples include my favorites - tortoise/hippo, chimp/tiger and the crow/meerkat friends. They are not included in this dvd. Is there a part 2?

Animal Odd Couples
Review by Claud on 07/17/20 review stating Animal Odd Couples
What a delightful and inspiring film about different animal species adopting and bonding to a species unlike themselves. I ordered 4 of these dvds to give to young children as Christmas gifts. The compassion and caring these animals exhibit to each other is astounding. That these stories are caught on film for the world to see is a step in the right direction for mankind. Humans take to heart the stories of these amazing sentient beings, we all have a lot to learn from them.
