The Mallard is one of the most recognizable and familiar ducks in the world. Mallards can live almost anywhere there is shallow water. This Mama Mallard has eight downy babies to keep up with. They nest on dry ground, sometimes up to a mile from the water. The Female Mallard leads her young to the water about 12 hours after they hatch. That’s a lot of babies and responsibility for Mama Mallard!
