The Duck Head-Flick as a prelude to take-off

Hi, I have noticed that the ducks in my area do a head-flicking routine just before take off. Seeing it helps me get some nice take-off shots.

It looks like the duck is tuning its nose (beak) up at something, over and over again until it takes flight.

Has anyone else noticed it?
