Absolutely amazing.  I never knew ducks could carry their little ones like this.  Seeing it for the first time.

Marvelous!  I did know that mother ducks carry their ducklings on their backs, but this one seemed to have made a real cozy room on her back for her little ones.  Though ducks do sometimes make amazing spaces within their feathers to keep their little ones warm and safe. 

Few more below ::


Usually this is how they pile up their babies on their backs






And this is one of those spectacular examples where the mother duck has tucked up her little ones in a chamber-like space below her wings. 




Alhumdulilah.

I bet everyone does.  But this isn't supposed to be some literary genre study with its typical structuralist approach.  Just a casual piece.  Duck/swan,  duckling/cygnet,  camel with one hump/camel with 2  humps,  goat/alpine ibex   etc.   Each of these different groups of birds and mammals being of same genre, their differing family names are often picked at random in informal conversations.  No big deal, right?

Yes I do know the difference.  But there's quite a variety and cross variety among water birds.  That first pic I posted of black 'duck' may not be a duck but it isnt' a swan either.  It's most likely a black goose .. or could be a long necked duck.  Black swans also has red beak but the neck is thinner and quite a bit longer with a prominent curve on top. I don't know if you've heard of long-necked ducks.  They're especially common in South and Central Asia.  When I was a teenager, we had a pair of long-necked ducks ... the place we purchased it from said "ducks with long necks" not geese and certainly not swans.   They don't at all look different from geese, some don't even look too different from swans and are certainly very different from the short necked freshwater ducks.   Some more pics for references will help to determine which genus the ones in the above images belong. Even  that last image above of the white feathered mama carrying her ducklings/gooslings/cygnet under her feathers is quite definitely not a swan .. it's either a goose or long necked duck.

Subhan'Allah.  Thanks for the info sister.  I never knew of these details nor the variety.  The traditional distinguishing features are supposed to be ducks having short thick necks and thick beaks.  But apparently these water birds have as wide a variety in breeds as household pets like dogs, cats and rabbits.
