    Pretty flowers, though I don't know what kind they are... Is that a boat-tailed grackel with the bread in its beak? At first I thought those were Mallard ducks, but they're not with those white breasts... Nice ones of the Red winged Black Bird and Cowbirds, too!

    Lovely series. I especially liked this one, which has a beautiful, calm feeling that makes me want to go outdoors.

    They are Mallard, but not pure breed ones. Male mallard have been recorded as attempting to mate with 38 different species, including 3 species of Geese, Chicken and Guinea fowl as well as other ducks, so they produce some rather odd looking off spring
