Rubber Duck

Usually appearing in herds as many as 200 animals, the common rubber duck is populating ponds and puddles all over Europe and North America. The name issues from its rubber-like, featherless skin. This limbless bird is unable to coordinate its movement, thus totally dependent on the influence of wind. This male specimen is endowed with a blue adhesion at its head - almost similar to a hat - designated to attract rubber duck hens.

ID: 007
