Ducks escort tourists on Lake Taupo cruise

According to the Waikato Times, it is because they love the captain.

At least twice a day, cruise boat captain Pete Boyle is visited by a flock of ducks, much to the enjoyment of his passengers.

It started with holding bits of bread out of the windows.

Now they fly alongside, beaks out waiting for their treat.   And each year there are more and more in the flock, as the ducklings learn from their parents.  By now, says Boyle, there would be three or four generations.

The future could be interesting.
