When we hear about the word duck, the first thing that we could probably think of is Donald Duck and all his whining. But personally, I would say that ducks are adorable creatures, especially if you see one swimming on lakes and rivers. The way they swim is just very graceful, yet they are able to move at a fast pace along the water while they make their quacking sound.
Ducks are also called water fowls because they are normally found in places with water such as ponds and rivers. Among the family of water fowls, like geese and swans, the duck is actually the smallest of them all, with shorter necks and wings and a slightly larger body width. We have different galleries of Animal Silhouettes on our website, but on this page, we are providing you with our collection of duck silhouettes for you to use on whatever purpose it may be.

History of Silhouettes
- As early as the 17th century, silhouettes became popular due to its cheap and quick way to capture the likeness of anything, and this was usually done by amateur artists and women.
- Up until the late 1700s, silhouettes were known as “shades” or “profiles” in Great Britain and as “shadow art” in France.
- Silhouettes were either painted or drawn, but the traditional method of making silhouette portraits was to trace and cut them from black cardboard and stick them on a white background.
- By the invention of photography in the 1800s, it signaled the end of silhouettes as a widespread form or making portraits.
Interesting Facts about Ducks
- The duck is a member of the Anatidae species of birds and is related to swans and geese.
- Ducks actually have no nerves or blood vessels on their feet to aid them in swimming in icy, cold water and walk on ice or snow.
- Ducks have a field of vision of nearly 340 degrees, and the shape of their eyes enable them to see both near and far simultaneously.
