What Makes Ducks Such Good Swimmers? 

As comfortable on land and in the air as they are on the water, several duck species are. Webbed feet and

waterproof feathers are two distinctive characteristics that give ducks their exceptional

swimming abilities. Webbed duck feet are made particularly for swimming. Since ducks don't

have any nerves or blood vessels in their feet, they can readily withstand cold water.

They serve as paddles, assisting ducks in swimming quickly and far. Ducks have waterproof

feathers as well, which protect them from the elements and insulate them from chilly water.
