    Ducks always look such a funny shape, until you see them on water, then it all makes sense.

    Similar to rq@2, The mildly deranged penguin says, “Ducks always look such a funny shape, until you try to roast them, then the importance of a duckproof suit makes sense.”

    The duck of the Northern Hemisphere. Here they’re the most commonly seen duck, well urbanized and a common sight in shallow sea or lake shores, tail up, looking for some food from the bottom.

    In Finnish it’s sinisorsa (blue duck) or heinäsorsa (hay duck), on the other webbed foot, a domesticated one is ankka and the here very popular Disney comic character “Donald Duck” is “Aku Ankka”.

    There are lots (of course) in the nearby lakes, but these two are the only ones that come by the house to eat the bird seed. They seem to go for the cracked corn (especially after it rains) and the peanuts.
