duck pond dreams

Our family is thinking about putting in a pond, and my son (7) has a dream of raising ducks. I am looking for some good resources on how to design the pond, without having to spend all my time reading up on this! Could someone recommend a good book or website? We'd love to have fish in there too which I figure would be important for keeping it clean, and we'd need to know what flora and fauna can survive our long, cold winters.
Thanks!

It would be helpful to know the location, long cold winters can be found on most continents, without knowing your location it is hard to offer any suggestions.

That's my roommate. He's kinda weird, but he always pays his half of the rent. And he gave me this tiny ad:
