Great pictures of a definitely photogenic suck species!
Oh no, competition for the Whistling Ducks.. The Mallards are pretty, great shots! Have a happy day!
HI Tex Now those 2 are looking for a mate! They have got their breedingplamge on and are on the look out!!!
Love the sound they make! :)MersadMersad Donko Photography
A very under-appreciated duck! I LOVE Mallards :)
If you can't whistle, then. . . :-)
These are the ducks that we see most often. They hang out around the ponds of the golf course across the road and occasionally wander across the road and nest in the neighbors' flower beds. We've also seen them swimming in our cow's watering trough.On another note...sometime I'd love to see/hear a video clip of your whistlers doing their "whistling thing"!
And while mallards are common, they are still really quite beautiful.
They look beautifully
we can here quack quack from our yard but can't see them.
They are gorgeous! We had many in Washington while I was growing up. Now they have zillions of snow geese and swans, too. The crops have changed, so the birds have changed.
Joking....and I'd get quacked up to hear a whistling duck!!These images are so sharp and clear. Beautiful Ms. T
They are a nice surprise on your pond and I love their green heads and yellow bills. Have a great day!
My Ducks Unlimited hubby has a carving of one of these beautiful creatures. I am fascinated by the feathers in the variety of color.
What a beautiful couple! :-)
Where I used to work we had one of these tame, we fed it crackers. One Monday we came into work and the ducks head and a pile of feathers was over by the dumpster. Someone killed our pet duck!
Oooops, I guess they aren't a couple unless gay couples are allowed in Paradise! :-)
A color treat too with their beautiful green and bright yellow. No doubt about identifying the Mallard!
I like them because of their beautiful head colours :)【ツ】Knipsa
Quite a pair. We see them often here in the summer.
Those are good-looking ducks! Nice shots!
Mallards are so adorable and beautiful and you took awesome shots of them. =0)
Ha ha! I think I understand Tex.. at least from listening to the videeeohhhhhs of Whistler speak!
A handsome pair of mallards. Great shots.
We have a lot of mallards around here, and my husband loves them. He is very protective of his ducks!
Hi Tex, I never get tired of Mallard photos. They are just good-looking birds! John
What little beauties they are! Happy New Year, Theresa :)
Lovely mallards! :)
Wow! Excitement "when I hear a duck quack."???? Ever been to NYC? If not, you'll need medication. hahahaha
Poor things, they must be out numbered by the whistlers. They are always so handsome though.
I think Mallards are beautiful!
Did they arrive at the quack of dawn?
Beautiful wild ducks are this, competition for the Whistlers.Greatshots Tex.Have a happy day!
The joy of celebration, the happiness of sharing,The beauty of a perfect year -Thats what youre wished at New Year and always!Have fun!
We have a gazillion Canada Geese in our community, so I understand the excitement of hearing "QUACK!" :D Somehow, it always sounds like laughter to me and makes me smile.Lindy
Zo komen er steeds meer soorten op de mooie lokatie af.
Wow , what captures these birds look majestic
Double guessing, yes, it's the Mallards.
I can imagine your joy in actually hearing a quack for a change.
A little variety is always nice. Maybe out looking for a couple of ladies?
Even though they are common, they always catch my eye.
This pair seem to be enjoying your pond very much.They also make an interesting variation of size and color along with the sound.
Love those green heads!! They're beautiful!!
I always get excited even though mallards are everywhere. Now, if I ever came across a Whistler, I think you'll hear me holler all the way in Texas :)
I always like it when you post pictures of mallards and the wood ducks too. They are so beautiful.
I hope I never get so jaded that beautiful mallards are just another ho hum bird! I love them! Happy New Year, just in case I don't get back here....
I always love their green heads.
Still envious of the variety of feathered friends you receive!
for me, nothing is common if it will pose for a picture!!awesome reflections, which by the way, you never mentioned!!!
the male mallard keeps its brilliant colors all year!
I really like the Mallards ducks,Tex!So preety!!Great captures!Dimi...
I like the way the Mallards laugh at you as well.
They are quite handsome!
Very beautiful images, I like.
Great photos of the mallards. They may be common but they look beautiful.
Nothing like a good quack.
they may not be rare but they are still beautiful, and your shots are lovely as ever. Wishing you a wonderful new year!
T, Nice ones! Mallards are definitely one of my favourites!
Beautiful series on the ducks. Happy New Year.
Lovely images, Have a great New Year.
They are beautiful. I love that quacking sound.
Love the teal.Happy New Year to you and your loved ones. God Bless.
Their heads are so colorful!
what a sweet twin :) i wish you a happy new year.
Great photo, I love these ducks!
LOL! I hadn't thought of that! It didn't dawn on me that the BBWD's don't quack. Way to go Mallards! :-)
I love the velvety color of their heads.
I can imagine that ! They are common overhere !
Pretty birds! Is it Fence day tomorrow or are you doing it on Thursday the usual day?
What a handsome duo!!!!...:)JP
Evening, such handsome Drakes, I love Mallards. Blessings Francine.
oh the pleasures of spying with you!ALOHA from HonoluluComfortSpiral <3
Haha. I can see that it would be a surprise to hear a regular 'quack.' They sure are pretty. Almost looks like snow there. ;-)
They are so pretty, too!
Lucky you! I would love to hear some quacks!
I love Mallard ducks. they are so pretty.Thanks for sharing these with us.Hugs, JB
Hi Theresa, Super series on the Mallards! I enjoy seeing them but they are not very welcome around here due to the over hybridization with Florida Mottled Ducks. Have a wonderful New Year's Eve tomorrow!
I love the Mallards! They are my favorites even though they're 'common'. The females are especially adorable though of course not as colorful as the males..
As always, I am amazed by their beauty. So, genteel and beautiful.I bet you are enjoying the quacks, Theresa!Peace :)
Dearest Theresa,They sure are a minority but I too love their beautiful heads and quacking.Hugs,Mariette
now this is the kind of duck I am used to seeing. they aren't that rare around here -- although this time of year; yes. They are just beautiful with those bright green heads.
Wishing you a very Happy and Blessed New Year. xo Catherine
They look like a happy couple :)
It's always fun to see what they're up too!
Even though they are common the male Mallards are certainly colorful birds, nice pictures!
I like mallards too!
I grew up near a Minnesota lake that always had mallards. I miss them. Thanks. Glad they stopped by for a visit. :)
They really are quite handsome! Love their gorgeous colors!
Always a joy to see and great captures. Have a very Happy New Year. :-)
There are only two types of ducks: Those that quack; Those that wish they could.Is that snow I see? Amazing also. :-}
Happy New Year 2015 Teresa.Te wish you a good !!!!Besos.
Oh, they are beautiful! I love Mallards...and I'm glad they're not rare....smile....Gert
I love Mallards, they are so beautiful!
lol, I would be happy if I heard sombody whistling :)
And sometimes at the right place and at the right time, a Mallard is the MOST fascinating bird of them all. I don't mind them at all and I think a pond without a Mallard is a bad sign! Happy New Year to you!
handsome and colorful fellows.
The Mallards are pretty, love your photos! Happy New Year!
That does seem odd, to have so many ducks, but no quackers! Nice to see the Mallards found you.
I've always thought the male Mallards were so beautiful with the metallic green heads and yellow bills, I enjoyed your photos with them swimming so nicely together.
They look happy. I told you how much I like them, thanks for sharing them!
I love ducks they are so interesting, great pics!
