runners

From the Beautiful Farmyard card set, one showing the Runner strain of ducks, with this wonderful note:

Runners flock together and are often seen today at sheepdog demonstrations, much to the delight of the crowd.

From Wikipedia:

Indian Runners (Anas platyrhynchos domesticus) are an unusual breed of domestic duck. They stand erect like penguins and, rather than waddling, they run.
