2020.05.20: odd duck

We observed something strange when we were out walking last week. A mallard duck did a fly by behind us, wheeled around a tree, and landed on the front yard of a house in front of us.

He calmly watched us walked past him then nonchalantly proceeded to cross on foot across the street behind us.

Can any animal behaviorist please explain?

“always curious
why my cousin the chicken
wants to cross the road”
