Peabody Ducks - These ducks live on the roof at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis. Every day at 11am they come down the elevator with the ‘duck master’ and head to the fountain in the hotel lobby where they spend the day. This has been going on since the 1930s! You need to get there early to get a good spot to see the ducks - a drink in the lobby bar gives you a good vantage point!
