Many thanks to Kriton for the answer on how ducks in Greece (Hellas!) say

An interesting footnote: "penelops" is ancient Greek for (maybe) a
mallard, and since those ducks were seen as very loyal and fiercely
protective of the their young, it is possible the name "Penelope" came
from that for the wife of Odysseus.  (Some dispute the etymology.)
