Picture Mallard Ducks
A young Duck is called a duckling. A male Duck is called a drake,
the female Duck a hen.
Ducks inhabit all continents except Antarctica.
Their legs are generally far apart and toward the rear, making
them awkward walkers but efficient swimmers.
All ducks, except the merganser, have bills lined with bony
notches for straining plant and animal matter from water.
Most ducks of northern continents are migratory. Most males
are bright colored with bold patterns.
Ducks usually nest on the ground.
Ducks vary in their migratory distances. Among American ducks,
the blue-winged teal travels the farthest, nesting in North America
and wintering as far south as Argentina.
Disagreements exist about the classification of ducks, but there
are a number of obvious groups. Most familiar are the surface-feeding
ducks, which include the Mallard
They live primarily on fresh water. The pochards nest on fresh
water but winter on inland lakes and along the coasts. Eiders
and scoters nest in the far north and winter predominantly at sea
