In this video, I capture footage of the “HUGE” storm that slammed into the Pacific Northwest as remnants of Typhoon Songda made its was on land.

And the time has come for me to finally provide shelter and the much-needed protection my Muscovy Flock deserves. The hatching of new ducklings and the onslaught of fox, raccoon and mink predation has inspired me to finally prepare their palace.

I use the Sony Digital Voice Recorder:

The quality of the GoPro HERO3+ is adequate for my needs:

Gimbal Stabilizer for GoPro:

When needing a second camera shoot or really high end, I use the Canon EOS 5D Mark II:

I piece it all together using Adobe Premiere Pro CC on a Macbook Pro and After Affects.

Muscovy Ducklings; New life on the Homestead

Muscovy ducks require an incubation time of about thirty-five days. It’s a taxing and restless time for the duck as she must protect the eggs, whilst keeping them at 100ยบ for the entire cycle. Our little momma has done a fabulous job keeping these eggs protected.
