Waterfowl and other species of birds are often referred to by different names according to their groupings. Ducks are no different. Duck is a common name encompassing numerous species in the waterfowl family Anatidae, like swans and geese. The ducks are categorized into several subfamilies in the family Anatidae and don't represent a single common ancestral species. They instead form taxon, since swans and geese species aren't considered as ducks. The duck groups are most commonly known as a raft, paddling, team, flock, bunch, plump, skein, waddling, twack or sord.
