Sprinkler Duck  
Sprinkler Ducks speckle lakes and canals throughout South Florida.
Sprinkler Ducks
First time Florida visitors frequently point out the large birds. Sometimes it's the chuckles that give it away, other times it's the fact that the birds never move, and some people still think they saw the biggest duck they've ever seen.
This duck would have been a clue too. See the two small baby turtles sunning on the duck's back?
This bird on the bird is a Double-crested Cormorant. They're interesting birds; they swim.

These big ducks are bobbers designed to blend in.

They are duck floats, or sprinkler ducks, that attach to the PVC pipe people run from their sprinkler pumps to local surface water sources like canals and ponds.
