"Ducks' Migration": a young college-age male couple is distracted by parents, as one of them watches birds more than people, for science


Ducks’ Migration” (13 min), by Geoff Mansfield, presents two teens, about college freshman age, building a relationship, under the nose of the parents. 

One of the boys is into birding and makes a point of being at a pond (in Central Park, maybe) when the mallard ducks migrate for the fall.


But the distraction of their parents’ concern over their relationship may interfere with the boys’ seeing the big event.  

The film could use better definition. 

There is nudity, but not complete. 

In the 1990s, I had a friend in “Adventuring”, the DC area LGBT group, who sponsored birding hikes.
  
The film makes a curious reference to Bastille Day in France.
 
 For another short film about a young male scientist (Dallas Taylor) and animals, look at July 19, 2017, about ocean mammals who would love him.
