I met a family of ducks a few days ago. Mama Josie, Daddy Fernando and children Philippe, Ramon, Sylvester, Tomas, Juanita, Josie Jr., Fernando Jr., Fannie ClaireAndy and Sampson were eager to float and chat with me. The children enjoyed a nice warm swim and play with Josie and Fernando. After play, I was able to stay and watch just how a duck learns. Josie taught the little ones the basics of floating, while Fernando instructed the flock in Quack 101. The next time you encounter a duck family, stop and chat. They are usually very friendly.
