In this quick tutorial you’ll learn how to draw a Duck in 10 easy steps. Ducks are mostly water-loving birds that belong to the Antedate family, which includes geese and swans. They can be found over all continents, except Antarctica, although some can be found on islands in the sub-Antarctica. Ducks are generally smaller than geese and swans, and can be found living both in fresh water and salt water. Ducks eat land and water plants, insects and fish, small amphibians, such as toads, newts and salamanders, mollusks and worms. Some ducks dive deep into under the water for food, while others feed off the surface of water and on land. A comb-like edge along the beak of a duck catches food from water that is squirted from the sides of the beak. While male ducks do not quack, all ducks make a variety of sounds including, cooing, whistle sounds, grunts and yodels. Ducks are easy prey for animals, fish and humans, primarily because of their inability to fly off a surface quickly.. Although human hunters generally prefer the challenge of a flying duck over a “sitting duck.”. The word “duck” is often used to describe something as funny, because of ducks seem silly in their behavior and looks. Economically, ducks have many uses. Domesticated ducks, which usually raised on farms for their eggs, meat and feathers and zoos often display a variety of ducks. Several fictional ducks, such as Donald Duck and Daffy Duck, have become famous cartoon characters.
