Mandarin ducklings dive from unbelievably high heights

Watch more with these video collections:

From the BBC’s Earth nature documentary, narrated by Patrick Stewart, watch these tree-nesting Mandarin ducklings dive from unbelievably high heights, only 24 hours after hatching. File under: nature is amazing.

In the archives: more bird nests with David Attenborough.

Updated video.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.
