There are ducklings in the Botanic Gardens.
It seems too early, but these birds are quite big, so maybe they’ll survive the winter. Did you know that a group of ducks can be called a raft, a team, or a paddling? A duck’s feathers are so waterproof that even when a duck dives underwater, its downy underlayer of feathers will stay completely dry. Very few ducks actually “quack.” Instead, their calls may include squeaks, chirps, whistles, brays, and growls.
“It may not be a quack, that’s true,
when you hear a duck talk to you.”
