Leaping Mandarin Ducklings

Mandarin Ducks breed in densely wooded areas near shallow lakes, marshes or ponds. They nest in cavities in trees close to water. Shortly after the ducklings hatch, their mother flies to the ground and coaxes the ducklings to leap from the nest. David Attenborough narrates.
Spectaculair, when those little ducklings smack on the ground. I can't believe they're unharmed!

The smaller the creature, the easier it can survive a drop. You can throw a mouse from a plane and it will arrive unharmed.
