Have you ever heard of the phobia called anatidaephobia?

This is indeed a very rare kind of phobia because it is never seen that a person constantly feels that a duck is watching him but there are few rare people among whom this occurs. If it gets serious, it may get disabling and might bar a person from maintaining his routine activities and it can even hamper the person’s personal life.
