Duck is the common name for a large number of species in the waterfowl family Anatidae, which also includes swans and geese. Ducks are divided among several subfamilies in the family Anatidae; they do not represent a monophyletic group (the group of all descendants of a single common ancestral species) but a form taxon, since swans and geese are not considered ducks. Ducks are mostly aquatic birds, mostly smaller than the swans and geese, and may be found in both fresh water and sea water.

Just a lovely picture of a duck. His first birthday (or rather "hatch day") is tomorrow.

This duckling offers to help his newborn sister hatch but then is surprised when he sees her for the first time; Priceless reaction!

Rescued A Duck

Some friends of mine found a duck on our college's running track with no other family members around! We took it to a nearby lake and he went swimming and looked so happy. I wish we had found his family, but maybe another duck family took him in!
