Feeding The Duck

Urban ducks and wild fowl are luckier than their country brethren. People think they are cute and feed them!
This is the same duck I posted before at the Crown Fountains, Chicago.

Perfect timing and a great smile from the guy. I think the people in the back in yellow look like somthing from an Sci-Fi movie with the machine one of them are standing on.

great photo but i have a few questions about a duckling. i am a new owner and i am not sure what to feed it when it gets older. could you please give me some pointers and hints and it would be greatly appreciated!

My father lives in Hunstanton, a seaside town in Norfolk, England. There are many urban ducks there that inhabit the town. Many of the locals don’t like them, unfortunately. I love them, partly because they are cute, but also because they are so amazingly adaptive. They seem to take the same routes every day as they get to know where food and water is.
