When Emily heard that one had relocated into a nearby reservoir, she raced to see him since she loves ducks and this particular one is one of her favorites. Yet when the little duck got there, she found herself in good company.
The cute girlfriend of the duck was considerably bigger than he was. He was also attempting to keep his sweetheart away from the larger ducks. Even though it was the smallest duck ever, he appeared to understand that size isn’t important.
These ducks court their spouses with elaborate dances and vocal displays that are far more intense than the more laid-back techniques used by duck drakes. They are quick and well-coordinated. The female duck appeared to be totally content with her little admirer, she said.
It was fun to watch, and not just Emily had picked up on the odd coupling. Several bird enthusiasts traveled especially to see the newest famous pair at the reservoir during the month of March. Although while crossbreeding amongst ducks is not very prevalent, it is not impossible. So, maybe this year will witness a lot of egg-laying from these serious birds, leading to the birth of a few cute ducklings.
