The funniest things animals get up to in the wild
Ducks are more graceful in water than on ice
Long-tailed ducks are migratory sea ducks. When the water isn’t frozen over they’re accomplished divers, reaching depths of 60 metres (197 feet), which is more than most other duck species. In order to achieve such an aquatic feat they use their wings to propel themselves downward. The sexes are easily distinguished as the males have the elongated tail feathers that give the species its name.
