: Ducks -- "Buildings that are meant to mimic things, such as objects or animals, are called 'Ducks,' and are among the most popular roadside attractions. The term 'duck' came about in reference to one building, The Big Duck in Riverhead, Long Island, but the term now refers to all buildings which are disguised as other sorts of objects."
