Compare this program with, say, the BBC David Attenborough "Life of Birds" 10-part series. That series is quite old, and was meant for a general audience, more general than maybe the audience of "Nature," but "Life of Birds" is less cheesy, has more real info and clearly explained facts and concepts of anatomy, biology, animal behavior, etc.
Like "Duckumentary," "Life of Birds" also has some lame music tracks, but just to give you an idea, "Life of Birds" is a series of 10 episodes, and I never got really sick of the music. For "Duckumentary," I'm over it after 15 minutes. WHY is there a music track over almost the entire program?? And, as another reviewer mentioned, why is the narration mixed so far below the music track??
I think this is part of the general settling for mediocrity in TV, and a trend to dumb down "Nature," "Nova," and other PBS mainstays. If you want dumb nature, watch "Discovery Channel." PBS is going to lose its niche if this trend continues.
The videography is great, but the program over all is far worse than "Life of Birds" which was filmed two decades ago in standard definition. That's saying a lot.
Though, "Life of Birds" does have David Attenborough, and he, as is his genius, makes the audience connect so intimately with nature, in a way that this program fails to do.
Keep the same footage, add a brilliant host, shut off the music track for most of the show, and greatly add to the scientific discussion, and this would be a great program.

Background music too loud, and narrator's voice too soft. I missed a lot that was being said, and I have good hearing. Beautiful filming. Read morePublished 22 days ago by charitysmama

Good Documentary - interesting and educational. I saw it and then bought it for my grandson. He watches it over and over. He is also a duck hunter!Published 2 months ago by Happy Feet
Yes, this really is a cute little documentary about ducks, filled with inevitable puns from the narrator, such as “they are like ducks in the water” or “they are sitting ducks”. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Ashtar Command
