    I love the joy they display when swimming, the victory laps after Duck Love, the quiet gabbling as they talk to each other, and I even laugh at their late night Duck Joke Fests.

    Quack, QUACK quack quackquackquack quack!

    Sometimes they hold Duck Drum Circle sessions, billing the sides of their plastic kiddie pool.

    Mine are Cayugas, so they are Ninja Stealth Ducks at night, totally invisible. If only they could keep from talking to each other as they traverse the yard, mostly single file.

    Then there is the head tilt whenever a plane passes overhead. Well, anything, but it's funniest when it's a plane.

    I love the joy they provide me, how they come a runnin' or a swimmin' (all the while quackling) when they see me coming with lettuce, and their jet ski races (pics below).

    ... when you spray a mist of water across the yard to water the grass and they stand in the water flap their wings and start preening themselves...

    when you hold a treat up for them and they stamp their little feet with excitement.
