The Call is a breed of domestic duck originated in Holland as a working, turncoat duck. This breed is also a direct descendant of the wild Mallard.
Originally employed as live decoys, Calls were needed to entice wild ducks into a laid-out trap- being selected for it's high-pitched, distinctive voice. Currently, however, Calls are primarily raised for exhibition, decoration, and as pets.
Today's Call ducks resemble toy ducks, with a plump, bowl-shaped body, short, broad bill and stubby neck. They are also not only the most talkative, but one of the most active breeds of ducks. 
Drake and Duck color will depend on the variety being raised.
