About this mod

Ducks and Swans for Skyrim Special Edition (animated statics)

Permissions and credits
Ducks and Swans Resource

for Skyrim Special Edition

Models and textures were originally made for Oblivion by Kaizit (username Stesha on the Nexus)
You can find the original resources here:

A big thank-you goes to Kaizit/Stesha for giving me permission to convert the resource files for Skyrim and to publish them as a Skyrim resource.
And another big thank-you for adding the new duckling and the nest models.
Please give Kudos to her:    

Note to modders: The duck and duckling meshes of the old resource for original Skyrim do not work properly in Skyrim Special Edition
(movements messed up). So I reworked the meshes for SSE.
If you have used the old duck meshes in your Skyrim mod and plan to port your mod over to SSE you need to replace these meshes.
And the swan texture now is less bright than in the old resource.


These ducks and swans are not creatures, they are animated statics that move on a given path, like other critters such as bees,
butterflies, pond fish and hawks. So of course they show no animal behaviour like attack, fly, eat, rest or the like. Their only purpose is to add to the environment.


This resource contains:

  Ducks (male and female)
  Duck family (female with ducklings)
Each of them comes with 2 different animation paths (I used the salmon animation paths as a base for these).
In the CK you can add them as activators. Or add them as flora (indeed flora, like the salmon and the coin purse ...) so you can loot ingredients from them.
Simply drop them on the water surface but make sure that you don't place them on mist or fog markers or they will float in the air.

  Duck's nest
  Duck's egg
You can add the nest as Flora like the vanilla chicken nest and add a duck's egg as collectable ingredient.



Kaizit (=Stesha) for making the models and textures
