Anas platyrhynchos

Description:

There were many mallards swimming in the lake, strangely almost all females being there only a few males. Most of them simply swam, but some serched for food in both of their manners (dabbling as in picture 6 and upending) and some polished their feathers as in picture 2 and 3. In picture 1 the beak similar to a dog face is visible and in picture 4 the characteristic blue stripes.

Habitat:

Pond in the park of peterhof palace
