Eastford Duck Makes Weather and Super Bowl Prediction

Six more weeks of winter, according to Scramble the Duck.

Groundhog Day featured Punxsutawney Phil predicting six more weeks of winter, while Connecticut's groundhog, Chuckles, didn't see his shadow and predicted an early spring. 

Groundhogs aren't the only animals in Connecticut that have weather predicting abilities. 

Have you ever heard of Scramble the duck? Scramble lives in Eastford with its parents, Paul and Julia, and its siblings, Benjamin, Micah and Isaac.

This year, Scramble predicted six more weeks of winter.

Julia Torcellini tells NBC Connecticut that Scramble has predicted the past three winters correctly and also has the ability to predict the Super Bowl winner.

Scramble has predicted the Patriots as this year's Super Bowl winner. Julia went on to say that, "Scramble doesn't like birds of prey", according to Torcellini. 

You can catch the Super Bowl right here on NBC Connecticut this Sunday.
