Mallard

The most famous Mallards that we know of in real life are the ones that live at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis. Their quarters are on the roof. Every evening at five p.m. they get into the elevator with a bellhop and ride it down to the main floor where they get out and march to the fountain in the middle of the lobby. After swimming around for a half hour or so they return to the roof via the elevator. It is a show not to be missed, but get there early if you want a seat. (The Peabody in Orlando and Little Rock also have Mallards, but the original is the one in Memphis.)

Oprah has served as Honorary Duckmaster of the Peabody Ducks.
