OK, maybe “the duck whisperer” isn’t quite accurate, given the way this bare-chested fellow barks his militant orders—but there’s no doubting a weird connection with his feathered flock.

Seriously, have you ever tried telling a bunch of ducks what to do? They are not great listeners. So color me impressed by the way they fall into formation and waddle through a barn door here.

Not sure how to feel about birds having a better handle on Russian than I do.
