[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Male with bright green head and pale body, female dull brown all over.

Mallard pairs form long before the spring breeding season. Pairing takes place in the fall, but courtship can be seen all winter. Only the female incubates the eggs and takes care of the ducklings.
