Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos)
Mallards are the most common duck in Canada.
Flocks often feed in early morning and late afternoon in nearby harvested fields, returning to marshes and creeks to spend the night.
The flight is not particularly rapid. Hens have a loud quack; the drake's voice is a low-pitched kwek-kwek.
Black and Mallard Ducks: These two species often interbreed which can result in hybrids with any combination of mallard/black duck traits.
