Avoid Donald perhaps (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

duck

Here is my best explanation:

This clue is a double definition.

'avoid' is the first definition.

(ducking is a kind of avoiding)

'donald perhaps' is the second definition.

(donald duck is a cartoon character)

(Other definitions for duck that I've seen before include "Bird - lower your head!", "Eg, eider; get down", "Use one's wits to get something", "Web-footed bird", "Water bird - get out of the way", "Mallard, say, or eider", "poor score?", "Steer clear", "Dip" and "Score of zero; bird".)
