A mama duck in Bemidji, Minnesota should win mother of the year after a photographer caught this amazing sight!
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!
Spent another morning with the mergansers. They are growing so fast. They continue to venture further out on their own, but as soon as Mama Merganser starts heading somewhere, they all quickly follow suite. Count is still at 70+. pic.twitter.com/MkIRc0wUnZ— Brent Cizek (@brentcizekphoto) July 23, 2018
