Photographer Spots Super Mom Duck Leading 76 Ducklings

Minnesota-based wildlife photographer Brent Cizek was at Lake Bemidji in June when he spotted this mother duck with a huge brood of more than 50 ducklings.

When Cizek revisited the lake to search for the mother duck (whom he nicknamed “Momma Merganser”) in July, his second sighting revealed that she had grown her adopted brood to 76 or more.
