Female Mallard duck with baby ducklings

 

Thank you for your visits comments and favs! :-)

The Wood Duck is one of the most stunningly pretty of all waterfowl. Males are iridescent chestnut and green, with ornate patterns on nearly every feather; the elegant females have a distinctive profile and delicate white pattern around the eye. These birds live in wooded swamps, where they nest in holes in trees or in nest boxes put up around lake margins. They are one of the few duck species equipped with strong claws that can grip bark and perch on branches.

Generally speaking the Gadwall is a pretty plain nondescript duck but with his feathers ruffled the varied colors of his feathers standout much more.

Ruddy Duck (Oxyura jamaicensis) male appears somewhat dirty from the minerals in the water which are staining the white feathers. Several males were observed swimming around the urban pond south of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Anas superciliosa

 

Mother duck said "Quack, quack, quack, quack." But only two little ducks came back

 

Just kidding there was five but the other three didn't want their photo taken

I captured this juvenile wood duck at Huntley Meadows. Always nice to see them when they are young so I can learn to identify them as they grow into adult form and plumage! This one is so young that it doesn't even have what I call the white chin-straps yet.

 

Taken 2 July 2016 at Huntley Meadows, Virginia.

If anyone can help with the identification of this duck it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much for the visit!

I've been chasing this beautiful Duck since I started with wildlife photography, and I finally got it!!!

Many thanks to all who take the time to view, comment and fav my images. Have a great day everyone!

 

Fishing by this cute little Mandarin Duck.

 

They are majorly found in East Asia and they are considered to be a symbol of LOVE due to their characteristic of being loyal and devoted to their chosen partner.

 

Their love for each other is so profound that if one dies or disappears, the other one will be devastated, will have no will to live anymore and eventually dies.

 

Because of their strong love bond, their image is commonly used on the wedding cards in China, Japan and other eastern countries.

 

Male & Females can be easily distinguished by their appearance.

 

This lovely creature teaches us the beautiful lesson of life, relationship and for happy life.

This duck is very similar to the female Mallard and is often seen hanging out with the Mallards.

 

Thank you for visiting my site and taking the time to leave a comment. Much appreciated!

Usually the ducks don't come in the yard to feed until sunset, but this loner got a late-afternoon head-start before the crowd arrived...

There's ponds and lagoons for swimming, snorkeling, & sea turtle-watching.
