Drake Mallard Wingflap

Post on February 19, 2015 Mallard Duck BirdsWaterfowl


Watched 4 drake mallard aftering a hen in a local pond, chasing and fighting off each others for mating rights then took turn cleaning of their feather in the water followed with a wing flap. So this was an easy target as they do that for a long duration.
