I think of them as the original ‘Daffy Duck’, the cartoon duck from Looney Tunes. Click above to enlarge.

The big crazy beak is almost exactly the same.

  1. Apparently the cartoonists tried out vivisection, putting the shoveler’s bill on a black duck’s body.
    In hopefully what will not be a repeat of our 2011 Halloween storm, we are forecast to have snow tomorrow and if we do then I will be a “Northern Shoveler”.
