    Because mean kids (like I was) throw rocks at them. Or a hockey puck is heading for their upper body, those are the mighty ones.

    You're DISPICABLE! (Daffy Duck).

    Dabbling ducks feed on the surface of water or on land, or as deep as they can reach by up-ending without completely submerging.[4] Along the edge of the beak there is a comb-like structure called a pecten. This strains the water squirting from the side of the beak and traps any food. The pecten is also used to preen feathers.

    Birds that dive have special wings. Penguins have flipper-like wings. They use these to move through the water. Underwater birds that dive can stay under the water for 15 minutes. Birds use many ways to fish. Some skim the water surface, while others climb 100 feet into the air before diving into the water. Diving birds have special ends on their flight feathers. They are notched so that they cannot stick together.>>>http://wings.avkids.com/Book/Animals/intermediate/birds-01.html

    Ducks duck, when they are having a bath, in a  river, so as water will go over their heads, down their back.

    Because they can. I like to duck underwater when given the chance............

    MYCATSMOM. SHE HURT ME THAT DUCKY. I ASK HER TO TRY OUT MY NEW "OVEN ME BEING SOCIABLE.

    They duck because...


    Three women die together in an accident and go to Heaven. When they get there, St Peter says, "We only have one rule here in Heaven: don't step on the ducks."
    They enter Heaven, and sure enough, there are ducks all over the place. It is almost impossible not to step on a duck, and although they try their best to avoid them, the first woman accidentally steps on one.
    Along comes St Peter with the ugliest man she ever saw. St Peter chains them together and says, "Your punishment for stepping on a duck is to spend eternity chained to this ugly man."
    The next day, the second woman steps accidentally on a duck, and along comes St Peter, who doesn't miss a thing, and with him is another extremely ugly man. He chains them together with the same admonishment as for the first woman.
    The third woman has observed all this and not wanting to be chained for all eternity to an ugly man, is very, VERY careful where she steps. She manages to go months without stepping on any ducks, but one day St Peter comes up to her with the most handsome man she has ever laid eyes on. He is tall, tanned, slim and muscular.
    St Peter chains them together without saying a word.
    The woman, thinking that this is great, remarks, "I wonder what I did to deserve being chained to you for all of eternity."
    The guy says, "I don't know about you, but I stepped on a duck."

    mainly the Grebe-- - - - -a form of a diving duck ---ducks under water. They do that to catch fish. Another reason they duck it to avoid getting shot by duck hunters..

    Remember there is food and water under them so they duck.
