    Hehe I'm sure the duck is just doing its natural eat/drink routine and the fish are just enjoying the spoils. But its a funny video to watch and it demonstrates how aquatic life can help keep a duck pond a little bit cleaner.

    That reminds me of this story I saw once, where a female Cardinal had lost it's young and started feeding the goldfish in their pond. Every year after that it would feed the fish, but ONLY the red/orange ones [​IMG]

    Hehe I love when nature breaks its stereotypes. I wish humans would do that more.

    Watching that video I see that the duckling doesn't tilt its head up after eat/drink like my two mostly do. Maybe its a breed thing or maybe that duck really is feeding those fish lol. I wonder if the ducks ever tire of the fish constantly following them around watching for scraps from one end of the duck or the other lol.
