Select around the object, try to include a bit of the background aswell as shadows of the object.
Now just drag to any spot to find a perfect fill to replace the duck. Do not worry, the replacement do not have to be exact because Photoshop will take care of that. Just be sure you cover all of the object you want to hide.
And voila! The duck has dissapeared thanks to the brand new content-aware patch tool in Photoshop CS6.
