If there was a mother of year award given out to ducks this mama would win!
This Minnesota photographer captured an adorable shot of the mother duck followed over 50 fuzzy ducklings!!
After posting the surprising image to his Instagram and Twitter, the Audubon Society took notice. They’ve seen a Common Goldeneye mother duck with around 20 babies following behind in the past, but nothing on this level before.
Spent another morning with the mergansers. They are growing so fast. They continue to venture further out on their own, but as soon as Mama Merganser starts heading somewhere, they all quickly follow suite. Count is still at 70+. pic.twitter.com/MkIRc0wUnZ
