Mallard Ducks, October 5, 2016

ABC Wednesday, Wild Bird Wednesday, and I'd Rather B Birdin'
M is for Mallard Ducks, Anas platyrhynchos

Mallard Ducks (female in front, the  male behind), Pickwick, Tennessee, USA, October 3, 2016
I know I posted photos of Mallard Ducks a couple of weeks ago, but this pair posed so sweetly for me that it was as if they wanted to be on my blog, so here they are!

Mallards are found on rivers, lakes, ponds, and marshes all around the world. They eat grain, grass, small fish and other water creatures, and aquatic plants.

Have a beautiful day!

    Hard to tell as they're both very pretty !
    Best wishes,

    I'm late getting here to visit with you, it's been a most beautiful day here in South Texas I just HAD to be outdoors this morning - birding, of course. Thanks so much for sharing this post with us at I'd Rather B Birdin'!! Always appreciated. Have a great week ahead.

  6. Hello!:) Hello, I'm also late,...been getting outdoors rather a lot enjoying our lovely warm weather. Very good shots of the Mallards which are beautiful ducks to see, and a pair is even better. Love the touch of blue on their feathers.

  7. When I think of ducks, it's always the male mallard.



I enjoy your comments!
