Thousands of ducks swarm road in Thailand


Posted on Friday, 20 June, 2014 | Comment icon 18 comments

A bewildered onlooker filmed the veritable tidal wave of ducks as they flocked down the road en masse.
Efforts by drivers to make their way along the narrow country road proved futile as thousands of the birds flooded down the lane like a river while their collective quacking produced a deafening chorus that drowned out pretty much everything else.

It isn't clear what the circumstances are in the video however it is possible that the ducks were being deliberately herded by farm workers from one place to another.

The driver in the car from which the footage was taken can be seen glancing at his watch and laughing at the bizarre and unexpected delay. Some could argue that he might have had difficulty explaining why he was late when he finally did arrive at his destination.

Have you ever tried herding a few hundred domestic house cats? Not easy! Ducks are significantly more manageable

They can't be all called "Donald". Besides, this looks more like a cute version of a zombie apocalypse. "Graaaiiin! Graaiiiin!" *drool* The Waddling Dead

When you are stuck in a 'traffic jam' like that what else can you do but just sit there in your car and say "duck it".

I wish I had the monopoly on duck sauce in Thailand.
