Some of the most beloved creatures around the village are the ducks on the canal. Among those, one of the most outspoken is the head duck, who has become known over the years as "Metamora Mike."
Due to his good looks and outgoing personality, Mike the duck has been more or less adopted by many of the local residents of the village as the chief spokesperson for this historic town. He has been gracious enough to speak on behalf of the local Merchants on some of the radio advertising for the town.
Mike lives on the canal with many of his duck friends and family. Though no one is quite sure of his background (he has an interesting accent when he speaks) he says that flying south for the winter is greatly overrated, which is why he stays in town year around, greeting visitors and locals. He is frequently rewarded with corn for his efforts.
Visitors to town can rest assured that Mike knows who's who and what's what in the village of Metamora, and can therefore trust Mike's recommendations. Look for his (copyrighted) image for his seal of approval.
