He is oh so very handsome. This is Lynda’s share: ”I got a new lens for my camera and decided to test it out in Edmonton. I saw this duck in a park on the north side”. Looks like the lens was worth the investment, thanks Lynda! She found this Mallard in his happy place – they prefer calm, shallow sanctuaries, but can be found in almost any body of freshwater.
DID YOU KNOW? Mallard ducks “dabble“. You’ll often see them with – either their head under water or everything but their tail feathers under water – “dabbling” for fish, plants, and the odd amphibian. They don’t dive very often and will sometimes eat grains and plants on land. Mallards have one of the most extensive breeding ranges of any duck in North America. The highest mallard densities are in the Prairie Pothole Region of Saskatchewan, Alberta, Manitoba and North Dakota.
