Synopsis by Jeff Gemmill
Paul Giamatti narrates this look at the world of ducks, which focuses on a male and female wood duck that meet and raise a family. The babies arrive knowing what to do and how to do it, and once in the water need no help in sifting and skimming for food. The differences between dabblers, such as wood ducks, and divers, such as ruddies, is also explained. Dabblers feast on the plants, crustaceans and larvae found atop ponds and lakes; divers, however, feed on the rocky and sandy floors.
