Mottled Duck


Duck-like birds are usually seen swimming. Many of the male ducks are distinct in bold patterns. While female ducks dress in modest grays and browns.

Notice the dark-body with creamy face to ensure that this duck is not a Mallard or Black Duck . The male Mottled Ducks have bright yellow biills, females have a duller olive bill.

Both sexes look like a darker version of female Mallard.

Non-migratory, but move in local environments based on the conditions of their habitats.
