Diving Ducks

As its name implies, a diving duck finds its food by diving into deep water.  They have very large, webbed feed and legs that are adapted for swimming, so they usually have a tough time walking on land.  When a diving duck takes flight, it will take a running start on the water and slowly gain altitude.
