Ducks

Waterfowl like ducks belong to a group of birds called Anatidae. These birds have some form of a “duck” bill and webbed feet.  These birds also go through a molt and lose their feathers all at one time.  This loss of so many feathers leaves them flightless for a period of time until new flight feathers go in.  The Duck catagory includes whistling ducks, surface feeding ducks, diving ducks, stiff-tailed ducks, and mergansers.
