A flock of Mallard Ducks have flown into the area from the South. You can always spot the Mallard males by the dark green head. They inhabit the Lake Hodgson where I fish and will be working the lake shore all spring and also will bring their ducklings to the lake for training.
This group of Mallard Ducks are on the iced over part of a flooded field near a small lake. We have had a lot of rain this week and it continues tonight.
There was something good to eat underneath the water. The male on the right and female on the left that are nearest to you are feeding. The water must be in the mid 30's F.
Here is a female with three males near.
Here is a lone Mallard in full color probably looking for a mate. they are common around the area and a very beautiful duck. The females are a dull brown with white flecks for camouflage. The ducks are pairing up to mate soon. they will build a nest and start laying eggs. The female tends the nest and that coloring works to perfection.
