The Mallard Duck is a dabbling duck that breeds throughout the temperate and subtropical Americas, Europe, Asia, and North Africa. It's easily recognizable by its vibrant green head in males and mottled brown appearance in females.
Mallards are particularly known for the male's distinctive bright green head, white neck ring, and chestnut-brown chest. The females, while more muted, have a distinctive mottled brown appearance with an orange bill bordered with black.
Mallards are versatile and can be found in a variety of freshwater habitats, including ponds, lakes, rivers, marshes, and estuaries. They are also commonly seen in urban settings like parks.
Mallards have a varied diet, feeding on aquatic vegetation, small fish, insects, worms, and even grains and seeds when on land.
Males, called drakes, have a glossy green head, white neck ring, and chestnut-brown chest. Females are mottled brown with an orange-bordered dark bill. Both sexes, however, have blue-purple speculum feathers edged with white, visible during flight or when displaying.
The breeding season typically starts in the spring, but the exact timing can vary based on the region and climate conditions.
This behavior, known as "dabbling," is a feeding method where the duck tips forward to graze on underwater plants, leaving their tails pointing up.
In many places, hunting Mallard Ducks is permitted, but there are specific seasons and bag limits. Always refer to local hunting regulations and guidelines to ensure you're hunting legally and ethically.
The Mallard's call is one of the most recognized among ducks. While the male has a softer, raspy call, the female's quintessential "quack" is louder and more frequent.
