This time of the year we still have lots of over-wintering ducks in the area. With all the rain we've had lately there are also lots of puddles and small ponds on the farmers' fields - the perfect spots to catch a few pictures of ducks.
The most abundant duck right now - Mallards
Mallards swim contentedly about, sounding like motorboats.
And often with the Mallard flocks are Pintails - though I have, at times, seen flocks of just pintails. I love their squeaky little whistle.
