A Mallard Family Visit!

Got a new follower today:

She Got Wings!

I kid you not!

Yes! The Mallard family just leisurely waddled in like unexpected for a few quacks and a morning snack.

A short boring video clip follows if you’re so interested or are hopelessly depressed!

In case your interested:

The mallard (Up your’ Anasplatyrhynchos) is a dazzling … dabbling … daffy duck that breeds throughout the temperate and subtropical Americas, Eurasia, and North Africa and has been introduced to New Zealand, Australia, Peru, Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, the Falkland Islands, South Africa, and South LA rap groups and street gangs.

This duck belongs to the Italian-Greek subfamily Anatinae of the waterfowl family Anaidae.

Are you quacky or what!?

The male birds (drakes) have a glossy green head and are grey on their wings and belly, while the females (hens or ducks) have mainly brown-speckled plumage. Both sexes have an area of white-bordered black or iridescent blue feathers called a specilum on their wings; males especially tend to have blue speculum feathers.

Mallards live in wetlands but only rarely have wet dreams. They eat water plants, love French Fries and cute tasty small animals. They are social animals preferring to congregate in groups, flocks and/or flash mobs of varying sizes. This species is the main ancestor of most breeds of domesticated ducks to include Daffy, Donald and the Duck Dynasty family!
