I have seen few ducks this fall so I was extra pleased to see a small group of Mallards earlier this week. The Mallard is probably the most familar duck to me for even before I became interested in birding I knew what a male Mallard looked like.
The dark green head and white ring around its neck always made this species easily identifiable to me. However it wasn't until this spring that I was able to capture its total colourful beauty at the Sackville Waterfowl Park. A handsome male was standing on a log and then gave a full wing stretch and I was there with my camara ready!
