A mama duck in Bemidji, Minnesota should win mother of the year after a photographer caught this amazing sight!

MAMA MERGANSER! I was able to again track down the now famous Lake Bemidji Common Merganser that has an adopted brood of over 76 babies! I love the story that these photos tell.

One mama duck had over 76 babies following her in Lake Bemidji. The photographer, Brent Cizek, was curious if what he saw was out of the ordinary or not for that type of duck. According to researchers, it isn't uncommon for ducks to adopt wayward ducklings but pushing 80 is quite the responsibility!
