A mallard pair floats on still water: an iconic Canadian image! Abundant throughout North America, the mallard is one of the continent’s most well-known and best-loved species of wild duck. One of the first to return to its home nesting grounds after winters spent in ice-free regions of the continent, this large surface-feeding waterfowl is the species from which most domestic ducks originated. The plumage of mallards is instantly recognizable. The male, or drake, has a bright green head, ochre yellow bill, and brown chest.
