The mallard duck is the most common wild duck in the Northern Hemisphere. With the male’s iconic green head which gleams in the sun, the mallard is one of the most breathtaking species of waterfowl in the world. The male mallard is called a drake and the female a hen. Ducks may waddle along slowly, but they can fly pretty fast. At top speed they can hit 70 miles per hour! During an eight hour flight, migrating mallards are capable of traveling up to 800 miles! The mallard duck flies in a V-formation in order to have the lead bird break the headwinds and lower the resistance for the others. The mallard reminds us that we accomplish more if we work together.
