Not sure about ducks, but I have seen Grey Squirrels steal bird eggs, and on occasion kill and eat young birds.
Both of those animals will occasionally exhibit omnivorous tendencies. Ducks feed on small aquatic invertebrates and fish, while squirrels may eat insects or exploit other sources. Meat is a highly desirable and efficient form of nutrition. However none of them are 'carnivores'.
