Gay Ducks

First it was gays in the military, and now I'm going to talk about gay ducks (that's right, gay ducks). Apparently Blue Ducks are a dying breed in Britain. In fact, there is only one female left. In an attempt to repopulate the species, two males were introduced into the females enclosure - but rather than mate with the female, they fell for each other.
"They stay together all the time, parading up and down their enclosure and whistling to each other as a male might do with a female he wants to mate with," Paul Stevens, the warden at Arundel Wetland Center, tells the Telegraph.
Ducks aren't the only other species to engage in homosexual behavior, "1,500 species...have been observed engaging in homosexual activity."
