Sue's Ducks Are Back Chasing Her Down The 17th Hole (3/25/2008)

The Mallards returned and Sue is busy feeding the little beggars. The mallard is 56–65 cm long, has a wingspan of 81–98 cm, and weighs 750–1,000 g. The breeding male is unmistakable, with a green head, black rear end and a yellow bill tipped with black (as opposed to the dark brown bill in females). The female Mallard is light brown, like most female dabbling ducks. However, both the female and male Mallards have distinct blue speculum edged with white, prominent in flight or at rest (though temporarily shedded during the annual summer molt). In non-breeding (eclipse) plumage the drake becomes drab, looking more like the female, but still distinguishable by its yellow bill and reddish breast.
