Northern Hemisphere's most abundant duck. Mallards are one of the marsh or dabbling ducks. They feed by dabbling the surface or by upending. Sometimes they feed on land.
|Seven ducks showed up as small ducklings waddling up a driveway with no adult duck and no water in the vacinity. They were raised at the NPWRC center. Photo taken 8/6/00.|
|A full sized lake at last! The seven ducks were released at a private lake with plenty of vegetation for the them to eat. The ducks never had enough room to fly while at the center, but as a final good-bye, one of the ducks flew around the lake and landed beautifully on the water, just as though flying had always been part of its daily routine.|
