    I've had some meat stolen from me by ducks before.
    Worse, I dropped some chicken once and they went after it...

    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'.

    They are not technically carnivores, no.

    Not in the same sense of the word that natural meat eaters are.  Animals tend to eat whatever is available.  Some are curious, too.  I happen to be a vegetarian myself, after having been a meat eater, but will still occasionally partake.

    This is an interesting question. I don't think ducks are carnivorous, squirrels could be though.
