Short stay

Well, Mandy the Mandarin duck was not around today. However, there were four brand new, tiny mallard ducklings, like little bumble bees.

Most of the mallards on the river are male, and this appears to be the case all over the place. Can't help thinking we are doing something to the environment to cause this imbalance.

Too many male ducks, well. Think about all these LUCKY duck ladies!

Not necessarily so lucky, Jazzy. There have been cases where too many males have tried to mate with one female and have drowned her.

The females could be sitting on nests. They hatch more than one brood. Little ones look alike for safety.

It is spring....I think fuzzytweetie is right that the females are nesting.
