Every Creek, river, pond in Padova has ducks. I wonder if government decided to let them live there just like that or added them for ambience. But it is a delight to watch them swim and fly. Yeah they fly so gracefully. If I was a duck, I would have wanted to be here because, I am sure ducks here dont end up being Mandarin duck, Chettinadu duck, or Tharavu varatharachathu. So, it's nice to be a duck in Padova. I am not saying people here wont eat ducks but they don't lift them from ponds like we do in our places. I remember how my cousins enjoyed doing that. And the pic below is ducks in India-( Delhi) many I am sure are no more.
