Jumping Duckling

Clip: Season 31 Episode 4 | 1m 19s

A young wood duckling jumps from its tree nest to reach its mother. It's just the second day of her life. She can't fly. But she can see the land far below, and hear her mother's calls. Maybe courage comes from necessity. Maybe it comes in knowing from birth exactly what to do. "An Original DUCKumentary" premieres November 14 at 8/7c (check local listings).
