Ducks are water birds that are commonly found in places where there is water, such as ponds, streams, and rivers. Ducks are relatives of geese and swans. Ducks are birds of medium and small sizes with a relatively short neck and tarsus covered in front of transverse shields. The color of the plumage of ducks can be varied. Females have dark brown feathers, so they can hide from enemies and predators. They can also camouflage themselves in their nests as well as protect their young. The male duck can be identified by its bright feathers. They come with purple plumage, a shiny green head, a silvery white body, and gray wings with blue markings. Males use their colorful plumage to attract the attention of females. Ducks have webbed feet that are designed for swimming. The duck has waterproof feathers, which helps the duck keep the body warm.
