    DUCK DRAMAS

    Is there any other meanings or allusion for the phrase "DUCK DRAMAS"?
    It's used for an article's title, but the content seems has nothing to do with the word "dramas," so I wonder why the author uses "dramas" for the title. The article is taking about how ducks mate and reproduce from the BBC Wildlife magazine.

    Thanks for help in advance.

    I'm guessing that the drama is in the sex life of ducks.

    The description of their mating, as described in the piece, sounds pretty dramatic to me!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You never know what to expect here. One minute you are not thinking about duck sex. The next minute you are. (And you can't stop.)
