Ducks and Trees

A duck looking up at a tree

I’ve always admired ducks for their amazing abilities to both fly and swim.¬†They can even walk too and to some extent run. That’s a pretty impressive skill set for getting around town and, well, the world.

Yet, I have never seen a duck in a tree.

And I’ve always wondered about that.

I think one of the greatest benefits of flight would be to soar to the top of a very tall tree, land and then take in the view. No flapping of wings to stay up. Just watching the sun, the clouds, and the world around.

I appreciate that duck feet are not ideal for tree landings, but still, you’d have thought at least a few ducks would have been interested in checking out trees.
