The flare is perfect
That duck was having fuuunnnn!
That was cool, I've never seen one land like that before, but usually the water is rougher when I see one land.
Perfect Glassy Water technique.
I like that left wing low approach with the left foot drag before the sliding belly landing!
Was there a mate around somewhere to show off for? Perhaps ... just having fun!
Smooth nice braking action.
We all can learn from this duck. Lol
Wouldn’t that be a Geeser Landing.... sorry, not sorry.
I thought the same thing, looks like a Canada goose to me, but I'm no expert.
I am pretty sure I have never seen a duck land gear-up before.
Will there be an FAA investigation?
Looks like a male Mallard duck to me, but I'm no expert.
You are probably correct. Do you know what the difference is between a duck and Canada goose?
About 2 or 3 pounds of crap per bird per day on your lawn. That's the goose output.
It is indeed a mallard duck. Notice ring around neck among a bunch of other differences
It is neither a Duck nor a Goose. It is a Loon.
I like the sound effects on landing. Notice the wheel chirp!
Yes, well he IS a full time professional.
You know what, you are right! I should've known that, I have 2 swimming around near me now. You can tell partly by the legs which are too far back for a duck or goose.
That explains the crazy landing...
Wonder if he ever quacks-up?
Those feet looked a little like Cessna retract gear.
A greaser landing.????
Of all the water fowl, the Loon is my favorite. Their call is absolutely beautiful and can be a bit haunting right around sunset.
I have a video of the 2 near me calling out and trilling. Don't have it hosted though, or I'd load it.
