We feed the ducks every morning. They see me coming out of the house and waddle towards me, bobbing their heads up and down. Fact number 3 – the ducks love me!! Well, I know it’s really the food they love. Ducks bob their heads up and down when they are flirting but they also do it when they are excited and happy. Getting out of bed in the morning is not easy for me but when I see the ducks and they bob excitedly beside me I can’t help but smile.
Then they follow me in a line to the pond where I place their feed. Fact number 4 – ducks will usually walk in a line. This, apparently, is related to their eye placement. Their eyes are fixed so they need to move their heads to see around them. The lead duck will keep an eye to the front and the others behind will look from side to side to make sure they’re safe.
