Male & Female Mallards

I spotted several Mallards in Victoria which is the capital of the British Columbia in Canada. Of course, the Pacific coast is their habitat. They have gray body and chestnut brown breast. The males are more colorful and beautiful than the females. The females are brown all over.

The males have green head with a white ring on the neck. Their legs and feet are orange in color (see the top photo).

They survive best in temperate and sub tropical climates. They are omnivorous and eat water plants and small animals like worms, beetles, flies etc.

Also known as Wild Ducks, Mallards are known to be ancestors of all the domestic ducks.
