Ducks are by nature curious and of an exceptionally gregarious nature. Because they tend to gather in flocks, their predictable behaviour renders them an easy prey for the hunter to lure into range. We know from wall paintings that the ancient Egyptians exploited these ingrained tendencies by using live ducks as decoys.
