Mallards

Anas platyrhynchos

Habitat:

Pond

Notes:

Also in this photo is an excellent specimen of a Mexican Mallard intergrade and numerous American Wigeons. These birds were attracted to the people who were feeding them bread. Most people do not realize that bread is a poor source of nutrition for ducks and that it can actually harm them. Fresh vegetables are a better choice, but hey, who's got that kind of money! Here is a great link about this issue: http://www.dec.ny.gov/animals/7001.html
