Mallards

8 posts in this topic

There's starting to be some mallards hanging out at Memorial Park in Shakopee already. Lots of open water so they didn't stay very close but there were some friendly ones.

The curls on the 2nd one are awesome. Kinda looks like the twin brother of the one I shot today.

With that curly of a curl, they must be northern mallards.

The only real way to tell if they are "northern" mallards is if they follow every string of quacks with an "eh". As in "Quack, quack, quack, quack, eh." You also notice them carrying a six pack of Molson. smirk

OK...stupid humor aside...the curls come with maturity and winter plumage...it has nothing to do with where they are raised.

Nice pics Meyer...I am surprised you have any open water...especially that close to shore?

Thanks Everyone! Yeti, this water is kept open by the birds I believe. It stays open all year long and it gets packed with birds once everything else freezes up.
