2. Absolute confusion
Black ducks and female mallards look nearly identical and often live in the same places. It’s so frustrating to try to tell them apart! Female mallards have a little bit of white around their blue stripe.
Black ducks are a little more rare, so if in doubt, it’s probably a mallard. Especially if you see one hanging around a male mallard.
This is what a duck penis looks like. It is kind of gross. In fact, I feel really uncomfortable, do you?
10. Hatred and revulsion
Ok, first off Muscovy ducks have really gross bumps around their faces (ew). Secondly, they’re really big and mean and when I was a little kid I remember these pair of mean big ducks chasing me around a pond and they were horrible. I know I’m not alone in hating these ducks, which are a domestic breed, not a wild duck native to North America.
11. Warm and happy memories
I absolutely loved this book as a kid. It probably helped that I’m from Boston where it’s set. There’s even duck statues in the Boston Common park to commemorate this beloved children’s classic.
