From ask.com: "The specific name for a group of ducks depends on the species, usually. Bunch, brace, raft and team are just a few of the possibilities. Most groups of ducks are commonly called a flock. A group of ducklings would be called a brood."
Oxford Dictionary calls it a paddling.

    I'd call it a cacophony ..... it had to be pretty noisy!! Fabulous shot!

    It WAS a cacophony, very noisy indeed. And this was only a small selection of the actual group, plus there were several gaggles of geese adding to the noise with their honking!

    A very cool capture and entry.. I like cacophony, too, and the gaggles of geese honking would make quite a chorus.. Love it!!
