An Original DUCKumentary

On Wednesday, Nov. 14, at 8 p.m., “Nature” premieres “An Original DUCKumentary.”  Vermont Public Television will broadcast this new film by Ann Johnson Prum, who produced “Hummingbirds.”  It follows a wood duck family, discovering how a male and female create a bond and migrate together across thousands of miles.  They nurture their brood of chicks, then head to their wintering grounds.

The film includes two sequences shot by Vermont’s Bryan Pfeiffer — one from Marshfield and one from Montpelier.  It also includes footage of a hooded merganser nest at North Branch Nature Center in Montpelier.

VPT will also air the program in its overnight schedule, and it will be available on demand at
