Filmmaker Steve Furman captures an event in nature rarely seen by human eyes in this short film detailing the annual ritual of the reclusive Hooded Merganser. This reclusive breed of duck is found exclusively in North America; the female Hooded Merganser lays her eggs in a nest high in the treetops of the Great Lakes region every spring. Later, after the hatchlings emerge, the tiny ducklings have just 24 hours to adjust to their new lives before they are forced by their mother to make the arduous leap to the ground far below.
