Why is this baby duck dead........

When I found a brood of baby ducks with their mom I was very concerned to see this lifeless little duck just laying there in the sand.  I wondered what happened, why is this baby duck dead?

Fortunately I soon realized that he was just dead tired!!!
Did he fool you too?  The little duck in the photo above does not look very well but it seems that when baby ducks get tired they flop over wherever they are, sound asleep.

See the photo below, he is just fine and waddled away later with the rest of his duck family!
