  Mallard Duck
by mcpangie

This mallard duck is a female. She is smaller than a drake, and as you can see a pretty average looking brown and white duck. In this species it is the male that gets to preen and be beautiful! Also in this section I have an image of a mallard drake with it?s lovely emerald-green head a gorgeous plumage.

These two mallards were a pair, and from what I could tell they were courting in the sturgeon pond. When it is time for the female to nest, the drake will be long gone. Like some water fowl, mallards aren?t loyal to each other in the slightest.

Directions: I-84 has an exit, about 40 miles out of Portland.
