The Common Mallard

... common but beautiful



When we walk by the local ponds or in the wetlands, it amuses us greatly to hear the ducks quaking. Perhaps quacking is not the right words, for I am speaking of their big, raucous noises that sound as if they are laughing uproariously at a wonderful joke. Perhaps they are.

Since green is my favorite color, I am inclined to agree, mallards are beautiful.

At the lake right next to our house, there are a ton of mallards. They are my favorite ducks there. There are some pretty unattractive ones there, but I love to see the ones with the green heads, especially when they turn and their heads turn blue!
