Outdoor Pic of the Day – Mallard on Boulder Creek
Almost all domestic duck breeds have their origins in the Mallard (everything except the Muscovy Duck). Domestic ducks are abundant in city ponds and can be difficult to distinguish because they lack the white neck ring, have white on their chests, are completely dark, or have bizarrely formed crests on their heads.
