Wordless Wednesday: Mallard Ducks


Almost wordless: The Mallards will stay here in the winter as long as they can find open water.

    Mallards always make me smile!

      Me too. It was nice to see some signs of life at the pond, which is mostly deserted this time of year.

    Ducks! Whats not to love?

      And they were quack, quack, quacking and swimming in circles – fun to watch too!

    A beautiful photo! I love to see Mallards. Several years ago, my daughter brought one home from school for a weekend–we named the duckling Mallory.

      Perfect name for a Mallard! 🙂

    For some reason you don’t see as many males here as you used to..just tons of females!


    • Leslie / Jan 28 2015 4:43 pm

      Juvenile males and females both look like the female – so maybe you are seeing a lot of youngsters!

    They look happy. No open water at the river near my house. It’ll be a few weeks.

    That water must be so so cold.

    Hi Leslie,

    We seem to have an abundance of ducks, geese and swans, spending their winter down here in the south of the UK this year. I suppose that on the whole, it has been particularly mild winter for most of us, although I am sure that the folks in the north of the country would disagree!

    I have a nephew-in-law who takes hundreds of pictures of ducks and although many other family members have a laugh at his expense, I actually happen to agree with him, that there are some stunningly beautiful and vibrantly coloured varieties of duck around, which are well worth photographing.

    Nice peaceful shot,

    I’m amazed how many birds do stay here in my neck of the woods, close to minus 20C or lower in some days. Other than Chickadees, Woodpeckers and Owls, on the water we have Mallards, Golden Eyes, Buffleheads, and yes, the Canada Geese.
