    Just a question for some of you guys who know more about bird than me. I have a competition idea but I need to know if a duck can close one eye while keeping the other eye open. I have been googling it for awhile and have been getting lots on the visual planes but not about the eye movement any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

    The only time I can think that a duck winks is when he/she is scratching their face.

    Yes we can! Ducks sleep with one eye open during daytime, this is because they can watch out for breadcrumbfeeders.

    Birds do it all the time, especially when they are almost completely relaxed but wanting to "keep an eye out" (literally!) in case something requires their attention.
