She wasn't too sure

Pulling off the French autoroute in an Aire on the way to Bordeaux, we saw a mother duck chaperoning her babies. They tended to wander off, go up to the males, or head for the small lake. She was busy rounding them up and keeping them in line.

Then another car pulled off and parked. A man, a macho-looking one at that, sat for a few minutes and looked out his window.

He got out and sat down and held his hand out to the babies. One waddled up, but the mother wasn't all that happy and herded her curious youngster away. 

The man watched a few more minutes, smiling at the ducklings almost constantly before going back to his car and driving away.
