This is our male Mallard. They cruise the shoreline so that the water is shallow enough for them to bottom feed.

Range and Habitat:
Mallard: Breeds from Alaska and Labrador south to southern California, northern Mexico, Arkansas, and along the East Coast to northern Florida. Spends winters throughout the U.S. and south to Central America and the West Indies. Preferred habitats include ponds, lakes, marshes, small river bends, bays, ditches, and city ponds.
