HI Everyone,

I was driving home this afternoon along the Burnett Highway between Yarraman 
and Blackbutt when I could see this dark shape moving across the road ahead of 
me.  It looked strange with the leading edge much bigger than the rest of the 
line.  As I moved closer I realised it was a line of ducks with an adult Black 
Duck leading 10-12 tiny ducklings.  They were travelling as fast as their 
little legs could carry them and luckily I was the only car in the area at that 
time.  There had been a heavy volume of traffic all along the way and lucky for 
them there was a break in the traffic which allowed them to cross.  Could 
she/he anticipate this or was it just luck?
