Mighty Ducks of Anaheim are a professional ice hockey franchise in Southern California. Yes, this club was started as a promotional tie-in to a Disney film, The Mighty Ducks, about a plucky ice hockey club.

Meanwhile, Oilers of Edmonton wear bright orange sweaters for safety, I suppose.

If it looks like a duck, and walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, yes it's a duck. Either that or it's an alien scout preparing for invasion while wearing some very advanced camo gear. Or it might be something Noonian Singh built. Or it could just be that you are seeing ducks everywhere and never see anything else due to the after effects of too much time spent in discos wearing leisure suits. With a white belt.

Here in Germany we have some featherviech from the nile (illegal immigrants!) that are called duck but their darwinian advantage lies in being some duckgoose

Looks like a rabbit; possibly the Easter Bunny. Note the fur.
