When we first encountered runner ducks we couldn't help but recognise ourselves: dashing about, herding little ones and all the while talking incessantly! But not all of us are ducks, and Earth is a far richer place for the incredible diversity of birds (and people) it supports.
Clucking hens, dependable penguins, and wise old owls are now as much a part of the DCUK family as our original wooden ducks and that family is growing all the time, with flamboyant flamingos, graceful swans, and curious garden birds joining the scene. So what is it about birds? Well, we think David Attenburgh said it best:
Birds are the most popular group in the animal kingdom. We feed them and tame them and think we know them. And yet they inhabit a world which is really rather mysterious.
