Sometimes there can be a pretty high rate of loss.

I get it with the loss of ducklings. I'm rather surprised at the number of the hens that have ducklings that die.
Around this area, the predators are almost always cats, raccoons or snapping turtles.

It generally happens here when they are trying to protect a nest.
