    When he was with the other ducks I think they were fighting for dominance. [​IMG]
    Great video. I enjoyed it.

    Quote:I researched duck behaviour online and Donald was acting like a normal male duck. They essentially mate by rape in the wild. It's normal for a drake to try to mate with anything.

    But are you sure those were all females?

    As far as his interactions in his new habitat, I'll leave that to nature, I'm sure they'll work things out without interference...

    Quite right Kim. [​IMG] I let my experiences get the better of me.

    Is the duck in the wild now? Or at a park? Or someone's backyard?

    I was hoping to know to!

    I liked you geese! The Canada goose was especially funny, all that head-bobbing looked like a teenager listening to hip-hop. I know, waterfowl just do that, but she was really into it.

    I scoped out the many ponds in the area and found one with a nice little housing development bordering one edge of it. So, it's in a semi-rural place where no doubt people will throw food to the ducks.

    I think the ducks there looked like a combo of wild and released domestic ducks. There were 3 other ducks that approached us after I released him, it was very sweet.

    The one he chased after appeared to be a male.
