About Scramble

Scramble the Duck is a prognosticating Pekin duck from Eastford, Connecticut who makes an official prediction on “Duck Day” every February 2nd. Billed as “an accurate alternative to the groundhog,” Scramble has an impressive perfect record of weather prognostications. According to his website, “Scramble can predict the weather because he has the most superior education,” in addition to the innate fact that ducks “live above ground, [so] they know more about the weather.”
