Ducks can take off vertically from land or water.They rarely move in a smooth, quiet continuous motion. They are rather fast and rigid when it comes to flying. They can be classified through feeding patterns. They can be either dabbling or diving ducks. Dabblers move their bills around in shallow water while feeding while divers immerse completely.
ducks are monogamous meaning they mate for life so most of the time a male and female will be seen together. otherwise usually a group of males are seen together. they swim and dive theier heads under water to eat or they rest near the shoreline.
Ducks are fascinating little creatures to watch. Wild Ducks tend to fly around from place to place and will land in local ponds or water holes to go swimming. They swim around and quack for a while and move on to the next place. Tame ducks don't usually fly.
