A farmer in eastern china gets Tuesday's patience award.

You know the old saying, you can lead a duck to water... wait, that's not right.

Anyway, a Chinese newspaper carried these photos of the farmer named Hong who herded five-thousand ducks to a pond for feed.

He's been doing this for the last six months. He and a farm worker herded the birds using only a cane.

Now if you're a driver and get behind the ducks, this sight may not be so cute.

Hong said he hasn't lost one duck in the migration.

We have no idea how he can be so sure...
