Mallard Ducks


December 11, 2012 while on a mushing tour with the WooFPAK on the C&O Canal Tow Path, the WooFDriver saw these Mallard Ducks swimming in some sort of algae. They don’t seem to mind it though. Mallard Ducks young leave the nest within one day after hatching! They are then led to water by their mother where they feed themselves. The Mallard Duck is still one of the most abundant ducks in the world. They eat a wide variety of grasses and small critters, from worms to small fish
