The answer to one of the universe’s burning questions – Do ducks duck? – can now be known, thanks to video posted by Colorado Parks and Wildlife on January 2.
A bald eagle flying above a lake in Lakewood, Colorado, made several unsuccessful attempts to dine on the waterfowl, but its talons were no match for the ducks’ speedy reflexes.
This video, posted to Facebook, shows the eagle repeatedly diving for the ducks, but they outmaneuver the bird of prey each time.
“Think you’re having a rough day headed back to work? These small ducks had to survive multiple passes from this bald eagle 礪 in Lakewood,” the post said. Credit: Colorado Parks and Wildlife via Storyful
