Nope, you were right, that's the mama. :) Daddy mallards are darker on their bodies, but have beautiful green heads. You have some great wildlife there! :)

It's funny, we have mallards around here and I can certainly recognize the male but I can't honestly say I've ever noticed that beautiful blue color on the hens. And the babies are the cutest! I love watching mamas and babies this time of year.

Hi! :)
I agree. We had some baby birds outside our house too this spring.. my sister-in-law was able to identify what kind just by the way the nest was put together. I boggled.

Our grandson's favourite bird, he loves to go and see them in the park. They are pretty cute I have to say.

Ducks! Aren't they gorgeous (when they're brown)? ^-^ You have such amazing wildlife near your home, Pat...

I know ducks aren't terribly exotic creatures, as far as that goes, but pretty.
