Duck is the common name for a number of species in the Anatidae family of birds. The ducks are divided between several subfamilies listed in full in the Anatidae article. They do not represent a monophyletic group, but are instead the members of the family not otherwise considered swans and geese. Ducks are mostly aquatic birds, mostly smaller than the swans and geese, and may be found in both fresh water and sea water.

Ducks are sometimes confused with several types of unrelated water birds with similar forms, such as loons or divers, grebes, gallinules, and coots.

The word duck (from Anglo-Saxon dce), meaning the bird, came from the verb o duck (from Anglo-Saxon supposed *dcan) meaning to bend down low as if to get under something or to dive

because of the way many species in the dabbling duck group feed by upending (compare Dutch duiken

German tauchen = to dive).

This happened because the older Anglo-Saxon words ened (= duck) and ende (= end) came to be pronounced the same: other Germanic languages still have similar words for duck and end: for example, Dutch eend = duck

eind = end

Ende = end; this similarity goes back to Indo-European: compare Latin anas (stem anat-) = duck
