Two pair of Mallards (Anas platyrhychos) Probably the most familiar duck in the world. They are litterally everywhere and do pretty well everywhere they go.

A most handsome duck is the Mallard (Anas platyrhychos). He also is one of my favourite ducks! Wherever one goes there seems to be Mallards. Three Cheers or Quacks for Mallards!

A hen Mallard (Anas platyrhychos) preening her feathers! Preening is important to birds, especially birds like Ducks who have to keep their feathers ship shape to keep the cold and wet away!

A Pied-billed Grebe (Podilymbus podiceps) with it’s young around it. She had five young with here, with the male leading the little procession.  I was very pleased to see these guys as they are a lifer for me!
