Caption: Mallards (Anas platyrhynchos), Belchertown, Massachusetts. The mallard is the most common duck in North America. The male mallard has grayish or brownish feathers, a green-colored head, and a purple breast. The female is only brown and white and is smaller than the male. The mallard duck is found mostly in North America and Northern Central America. They nest under boulders, in tree holes, in the crotch of trees, or in open areas. They usually feed at the surface of the water, but just tip their heads under to feed. One of their favorite waterplants is Duckweed (Spirodela polyhiza) a.k.a. Duck-meal or Giant Duckweed.
