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.

People's Park in Bray.
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.
