Here's a quote from that link: "I've talked to biologists who fly aerial waterfowl surveys, and they've told me the first thing they notice when they see ducks on the water is their black profiles."
I read this exact same thing a lot. I have no reason to doubt it. I do have reason to doubt its significance, since we have no way of knowing if waterfowl see things the same way waterfowl biologists
see them. Almost certainly they DO see things differently, the question is: how much differently and in what way(s)?
E.g.: Hens are difficult for you and I to see. Are they difficult for the ducks to see?
