Inflate the yellow 260 and leave approx. 5 fingers un-inflated.

Make a 4 finger fold twist for the head, then a 2 finger bubble and a 2 finger pinch twist.

Then for the body a 5 finger bubble followed by a 1.5 finger pinch twist.

The remainder of the balloon wrap very tightly around the lower
5 finger body bubble and tie into the rear pinch twist.

Discard the rest of the balloon.
Position the neck bubble between the two 5 finger upper body bubbles.

Inflate the orange 160 to approx. half way, you can get two beaks from the one balloon.

Make a 4 finger fold twist.

You can add the blue 260 around the lower section of duck and add to a hat
or just have the duck on the blue 260 as a display.

If you do make then please post a picture or two, thanks.
