Would you like some humor with your duck?

A humorous lead in a mainstream article about birding just might be the lure that successfully gets readers to stick with the article, learn more about this hobby/ sport/lifestyle and become involved.

The ducks are back in town. Millions, or so it seems, crowded along the bayshore, the restaurant row for the waterfowl set. If there were a duck Zagat Survey, the old salt ponds ringing the South Bay would score high on decor ("request a levee-view") and food ("the invertebrates are to die for").
Take a peek at this nice piece about ducks in California's Bay Area.

If I wasn't a birder already, that article would have made me get in my car to go see the ducks.

preCISEly! That article is great marketing/publicity for birding.

The link to the article was dead. I think I found it here.

Thanks for the heads-up, Ben. When I clicked your link, the page asked for registration. Bah.

So here's another option.
