First Flight! Actually, it is first jump. Baby ducks (or any baby bird, for that matter) cannot fly. But birds stay in the nest til they can fly, ducks drop down into the water or ground and go from there.
This New Zealand sheep avoided shearing for 6 years by hiding in caves . it had enough fleece for 20 suits when it was finally sheared. Hopefully it felt a bit cooler and lighter afterwards! Hiding in caves.
