Ducks belong to the family of swans and geese. They come in various colors, sizes, and shapes. Some ducks are easily recognized by their coloration and bill shape. This diversity is reflected in their adaptations to different ecosystems around the world.

Ducks are highly social and are often spotted in flocks. This provides safety in numbers from predators. Many duck species are migratory birds that travel thousands of miles to reach breeding grounds or for warmer weather.  Ducks fly in V-shaped formations, which is a testament to their coordination with each other.

The human-duck relationship

Ducks have a long-standing relationship with humans. For centuries, ducks were the object of hunts, but nowadays, they are admired from afar in parks and in the wild. Ducks are also domestically raised for meat, eggs, and feathers used in pillows.

This was an interesting event caught on camera. A flock of ducks got stuck in the middle of a swimming gala. Interestingly enough, no one stopped to help the ducks get out of the swimming pool, but instead, the race kept on going. What do you think about this?

Although the video made for a unique encounter, the ducks looked distressed and were left to navigate the pool between swimmers.
