I’m a teacher and today two new students signed up at my school - three year old identical twin boys. Their names are Sora and Riku.
That generation is here.

Comb Duck and Knob-Billed Duck (Sarkidiornis melanotos) -
Comb ducks are one of the largest species of duck, and they are the only members of the genus Sarkidiornis. There are two subspecies of comb duck. They differ only slightly by size and color. These ducks are common in pan-tropical regions of Madagascar, southern parts of Asia and northern parts of Argentina.
Male ducks have a large knob on their beaks and are larger than females. Juveniles are more mottled and their feathers are duller brown. As they mature, their wings become black and iridescent, and their breasts and undersides become whiter. They live and feed in groups, eating mostly water vegetation and sometimes fish. Unlike many other ducks, they prefer to perch in trees.

THIS IS LITERALLY WHAT PEOPLE DO TO GET EMUS TO COME CLOSE
Apparently you lie on the ground on your back and move your arms and legs.
And the emus are very curious and come over like, “The fuck is that.”
And that’s literally what it is. They come over wondering what the fuck you’re doing
This might be my favorite piece of information I have ever learned.
The Wood Duck! This was the first fancy duck we saw while birding. These ducks are special because they have feet that allow them to perch on branches and nest in trees unlike other waterfowl. Woodies have ornate patterns on almost every feather!
