    Sorry if I laughed a little, I should be ashamed. [​IMG] At least it had a happy ending. [​IMG]

    I read the article, first, so I knew nothing terrible happened, but I felt bad about laughing, especially as they were really being blown around just like their mom, who was desperately trying to help them.

    I checked the video and she had 11 to begin with and 11 at the end. One did roll over and looked like it went through the grate, but it must have been a shallow grate to begin with because she had the same number at the end as she did in the beginning.

    ETA: I checked again and just before the camera panned away, I saw the little duckling crawl away from the vent, I don't think he fell all the way in.

    Dang it...I had to go back and watch it over and over...yep, one less at the end...ok, it's not funny anymore... [​IMG]

    I counted too, and at first I though 11 and 11, but in the very beginning, there are 2 directly behind her, not 1, so there was 12 at the beginning...it took me about 4 times to see it...​
