Rubber Duck [gone]
Oxnard, CA
This Duckmobile came from the "Batman Returns" roller coaster at the now-gone Astroworld in Houston. I believe it is a replica of the one that the Penguin drove in the 1992 movie. This Duckmobile was parked next to this Drury Inn since at least 2008. These photos are from 2011. It disappeared around 2013. The original Duckmobile is or was located in Hollywood, CA. For more, see this website.

This Rubber Duck float advertises for Vassar's annual Riverfest which includes a rubber duck race.

This Rubber Duck in Oxnard was installed on the roof of Pacific Coast Re-Bath in 2015. It was produced in Los Angeles from durable foam. It was gone by 2016.

The Rubber Duck in Vevay is installed on a trailer in front of Little Lambs Daycare. [map]

This Daffy Duck statue is installed in front of Sanford's Grub & Pub. There is also a Bugs Bunny statue here. These fiberglass statues are about 30 feet tall. There are about 10 Sanford's locations in WY, CO, SD, and ND. This is the only location with the statues. I believe it opened around 2007. [map]

Coot
Ashby, MN
Loon
Virginia, MN
This Coot statue is about 10 feet tall. It was made of concrete and metal. The weight of the wings requires this bracing. It was built in 1991 by Steve Morgan for "Coots Unlimited", a local sportsmen club. [map]

The Loon in Virginia was installed on Silver Lake in 1982. It replaced a smaller loon from 1979 which was vandalized. This fiberglass statue is tethered by a cable to the bottom of the lake. It is about 21 feet long and known as "Ginny". The statue is put in storage during the winter months.

Loon
Mercer, WI
This 16 feet tall Loon is nicknamed "Claire d'Loon". The statue has been here since 1981 and had a box that produced loon sounds. The voice box is being restored in 2015. Mercer claims to be the Loon Capital of the World. [map]

Loon Car
Park Rapids, MN
This Loon Car was created by Wayne Shilson in 2005. The car was pulled in local parades but has been retired. It was located behind the Park Rapids Information Center when these photos were taken in 2011. I don't know if it is still there. For more, see this website.
