Mallard Duck

The mallard duck is a water bird.   A baby duck is called a duckling.

The mallard duck is a vegetarian.  The mallard  duck eats water weeds, bread and scraps. Brown bread is healthier  than white bread but they can still eat it.

The mallard  duck lives on land and swims in the water.  It builds it's nest in the reeds.

This picture was taken during our field trip to the
People's Park in Bray.
The male mallard duck has a green  head, an orange beak and orange legs, brown and white wings and a blue patch on its wing.  The female mallard duck has brown and white speckled feathers.  She  also has a brown and orange beak.

The mallard duck has webbed feet to help it swim, but this means it waddles when it walks.  It is a good flyer, and it skims over the water when it is landing.
