We came across these nine adorable lil city ducklings and their Mom while taking a stroll by the West 79th Street Boat Basin at Riverside Park on Manhattan’s Upper Westside. Hope you find them as cute and loveable as we did, despite their rather turbulent surroundings.

  • Yeah, are bedroom walls of made of steel? No. Made of wood. Cupboards made of steel? No; made of wood. Toilet paper made of steel? No; made of…*drum roll*..wood. The logging industry not only fuels the economy, it’s completely ecologically safe. The amount of trees planted surpass the ones cut down. And I’ve been in the carpentry business for 7 years, and my dad has been in it for almost 30 years. We build houses. Never once seen a house built of steel lmao, newb. Doesn’t happen.

    • then why are the forest in trouble? too much logging and fyi the walls are made from cement which isnt wood its stone. logging should be reduced. animals are losing homes because of logging.

      • oh cement and steel is much better is it? I guess you don’t have a clue how much oil is burnt in those processes do you? Wood isn’t just for animals to have shelter; it’s for humans to use as shelter too. Yea, I am from the country, and I can tell by your knieve attitude you’re from the city, and you’re probably still in highschool. Like I said, trees are cut completely ecologically safe. Without wood you wouldn’t doors to your room, toilet paper, FLOORS (even in steel homes), etc

    • oh and you must be from the country since now in the city we have more homes with a small amount of wood used but mostly cement so stfu i dont give a f*** about you working in the whole carpentry buisness logging is a threat to every one trees take too long to grow so loggers go to different spots for new trees causing problems to the evironmen

  • Lovely vid, thanx for uploading it

  • i feed these to my snake, it’s really entertaining to watch

    • If I see a snakeowner I generally put my fist right through his face. Then I take the dirty little snakeowner and throw him in a tub of weak acid, before feeding the scumbag to crocodiles in Everglades. A snakeowner deserves the pain and It’s nice to hear a snake owner scream.

  • cute! they cant get across a cute ducky bridge

  • Great video but your demands are annoying.

  • Restaurant and others: we have 2% of farms handling 75% or more of meat production. By sanitation standards alone things are not pretty. antibiotics they inject animals with as a preventative measure produces antibiotic-resistant mutant strains. Hormones pumped into them produce pigs that can’t stand up in some cases.waste management is horrible: rainwater sweeps it into surrounding ground and waters. Do some research: a little balance to this whole process is all some are asking for.

    • what? It’s sez on my PAGE Look: don’t support the meat INDUSTRY. It’s ruining the planet. Unless there’s nothing else, we don’t need it. All your flavouring and spices don’t come from meat, and they only serve to mask the flavour of the meat. You’ll also get more vitamins from fruit and veg, you’ll look and feel more healthy. Don’t worry about protein; you’ll get plenty from brown bread, peanut butter, rice, nuts, beans, everything else has a little protein. u need 1g for every kg u weigh

      • ooohh UK, that explains everything… always the first to point fingers at someone else. Meat industries ruining the planet? LOL An you don’t think cows are, by polluting the planet when they fart? Man just shut that hole in your face. You bore me and I’ll eat as much meat as I want.

      • An M-16 is weapon… look it up on wiki and you might learn something. Your so full of hate, because you think everything is so evil. Wake up and have a look around. The world isn’t gonna last forever moron.

        • I never denied uk is bad, I do what I can here and I’m urging you to do your bit. Meat industries are ruining the planet for US. It’s BECAUSE of this industry that an abnormal amount of abnormally fed cows ARE farting methane/sulphur which is polluting the planet. I know what an M16 is. My comment “M-16?” was a suggestion for you to use it on yourself, following my demonstration that you’re to blame. Also to express surprise that you have that much hate, but there you go, you are american.

          • I am doing my bit… eating meat (mostly steak I might add) to cut down on methane/sulphur and I work. Why don’t you stand in front of MY M-16. You’ll do the whole world a favor. I’m done with you. If you want to comment back to make yourself feel better then do so, because I’m not replying back to any more of your stupid non-sense comments. Have a nice day.

          • eating meat does NOT cut down on methane/sulphur, it does the opposite. What a stupid thing to say, and I say this for the benefit of any reader passing by. Please google the subject, or youtube it.

  • An if you don’t use a car, that must suck for you LOL

  • the tax dollars that buy weapons that bomb civilians in iraq. I don’t mind using money because I approve of it’s printing. I don’t use a car. The western world suppots slave labour in other countries, by buying products made under such circumstances. My point, which you clearly failed to see was the idea of personal responsibility. Morality MUST rest upon that notion. You did not have to actually kill the animal yourself, but you must be the one responsible for ending it’s life.

  • I just ate a nice big juicy steak last night. Damn it was good and thinking about having another tonight and probably the end of this week :D

    • Did you kill it yourself? If you did, I got no problem with you. If you didn’t then you’re dependent on someone else, therefore you got no place talking in such an independent minded way. It would be simply nonsensical and cowardly.

  • I don’t think the pain caused by the killing is the issue here: it’s the fact that it need occur at all. There’s more chance of a (wild) animal reaching old age in the wild than on a farm. Old meat’s no good to the farmer. There’s a natural balance that is reached in the wild, whereby the hunted always vastly outnumber the hunters, otherwise the hunters die of starvation. Again, regarding the hunters where you live, I refer you to “how morality works”.

  • Meat is completely unnecessary to those that have a CHOICE. I refer you AGAIN to “how morality works”. Farm animals aren’t geared for the wild because they’ve been domesticated through breeding. By humans. Doesn’t mean they need killing. Their food and shelter has become our responsibility. You’re right about one thing: I dislike dairy produce especially milk, because I find the concept distasteful and unneccesary, but not morally wrong. veganism feeds more from a given area of land.

  • If you could eliminate the cost of food, than great; I’d agree with you. You probably go to the supermarket and buy a shit ton of groceries. Well, news flash, you are a fortunate person. Not everyone can do that. Especially not buying pure vegetables and fruit; they are expensive. You live in an upper echelon; someone able to afford nothing but healthy vegetables and fruit. Most people aren’t as fortunate, and often, shooting a deer (ecologically safe) is how people eat for the winter.

    • I don’t know about canada but in UK, meat is more expensive than veg. Probably because of all the work involved in killing it, skinning, gutting, etc. The cost to the planet in terms of resources, which is the real cost, is greater. The required populations of hunter and hunted means that rapidly increasing amounts of land are being used for cows to feed on. Rainforests are being cut down at ridiculous rates, and the resulting land becomes dust soon after. Look up methane/cows. NO joke.

      • Rainforests being cut down? I first I thought the vegetarianism ideals were useful, because it is healthy, but cutting down rainforests?? Wood is a natural resource, and it’s cut down in an ecologically-safe controlled manner. The logging industry is one of my country’s largest industries contributing to the economy. Without trees being cut down: 1) You wouldn’t live in a house (unless you’d rather burn oil to build stuff out of plastic)??. 2) You wouldn’t be able to wipe your ass.

      • I heat my house all winter with a wood furnace; a natural, safe, and relatively cheap way to heat your home. What do you suggest we do, burn more oil? What kind of heating system do you have? Oil furnace? Gas? What do you suggest people make houses out of? Plastic, metal? A lot of oil would be burnt in those processes. The raw materials from forests being cut provides countless consumer and industrial products. Logging industries work with conservationists to maintain the tree population.

        • In London we make houses out of….brick. The rain forests are being cut down to make space for cows to graze. Trouble is, the topsoil has never seen sunlight until then, and it is blown away, the land becomes useless for anything to grow in it. So more rain forests are cut down. There will never be enough grazing area to satisfy the current demand for meat. The abnormal no. of cows produce an abnormal amount of methane. Did you look this up? Nothing wrong with sustainable forests.

  • A rather pleasant and suitable piece of music to this charming little natural happening. Thanks to God for the happening, and thanks to you for giving me the opportunity to have this video among my channel`s favourites.

  • That takes me back to when my grandparents raised ducks in their pond. Thanks for bringing that memory back!

  • most adorable thing ive ever seen

  • it’s cute when all of them jump to the land thing

  • I have two pekin ducks they are great pets .

  • Aww! I love how at 1:28 – 1:33 when the mum walks away, and the ducklings take a little while to realise she’s gone and need to catch up. :D

  • That is Sooo adorable! How wonderful that you were able to capture that on video! Nice job!…

  • i once a a box full of baby ducks to be shipped to a farm, were soooooooo cute exept for the fact they kept quacking and i was like 6 or 7 so i was afraid id get quacked on (physicaly) if i petted them : /

  • The begging text at the end of the video ruined it for me. I hate that stuff.
