I grew up on a farm. The ducks I grew up around had sex with anything, including inanimate objects. I never observed any significant pair-bonding. Maybe the article is referring to some very specific breed of duck...This article seems to have a bit of an agenda, but since it's my agenda too, all is forgiven.
Well its possible that the duck breed was specific but also remember that these guys were studying them - quite possibly other animals don't associate the whole exclusivity thing that's become popularized in human culture but that doesn't mean they wouldn't at the same time have a significant partner
