Brave little mandarin ducklings (Earth)

The mandarin ducks are courting.

The female mandarin nests in a tree hole and when it's time for everyone to leave she leads the way.

The ducklings are only twenty four hours old.

It's a long drop, and a few calls of encouragement are required.

They won't be safe until they reach water
and the forest pool is almost a mile away.

Earth is a 2007 nature documentary film which depicts the diversity of wild habitats and creatures across the planet. The film begins in the Arctic in January of one year and moves south, finishing in Antarctica in the December of the same year. Along the way, it features the journeys made by three particular species, the polar bear, African bush elephant and humpback whale, to highlight the threats to their survival in the face of rapid environmental change. A companion piece to the 2006 BBC/Discovery/NHK television series Planet Earth, the film uses many of the same sequences, though most are edited differently and there is some previously unseen footage.

Earth was co-directed by Alastair Fothergill, the executive producer of the television series, and Mark Linfield, the producer of Planet Earth's "From Pole to Pole" and "Seasonal Forests" episodes. It was co-produced by BBC Worldwide and Greenlight Media AG, with Discovery and NHK providing some of the funding. The same organisations collaborated on Fothergill's previous film, Deep Blue (2003), itself a companion to his 2001 television series on the natural history of the world's oceans, The Blue Planet. The British version of Earth was narrated by Patrick Stewart and the US version was narrated by James Earl Jones.

I thought these were "Wood Ducks" ?????They only have a certain time frame to get to safety, as predators are waiting for this opportunity as the ducklings hatch and make their way to the pond...If one delays too long, the mother calls, that call is also heard by a hungry fox or wolf etc.
