Ducks

Ducks in a cage

The duck was a type of bird native to the planet Earth. As a food, they were eaten roasted. (ENT: "Singularity") A baby duck was called a duckling. The lyrics of Oh My Darling, Clementine mentioned the titular character driving ducklings to the water. (VOY: "Equinox")

In 2268, James Kirk told the Beta XII-A entity it was a dead duck aboard the USS Enterprise, as he and Kang's people had realized they could defeat it with peace. (TOS: "Day of the Dove")

In 2285, when the Enterprise entered the Mutara sector, they were engaged in combat by a Klingon Bird-of-Prey commanded by Kruge. During the attack, they had lost control of their ship, Kirk said: "So, we're a sitting duck." (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock)

Ducks were among the animals brought by the Bringloidi when they were evacuated from their planet by the USS Enterprise-D in 2365. (TNG: "Up The Long Ladder")

Later that year, Captain Kathryn Janeway likened the constant, minor attacks by Kazon raiders on Voyager to being "pecked to death by ducks." Soon after, when Voyager had been captured by Kazon, Tom Paris sent a message to The Doctor on the Emergency medical holographic channel and described himself as a "dead duck" if The Doctor wasn't receiving it. (VOY: "Basics, Part II", "Basics, Part I")
