Nature Walk: Greenheads
“Mallards are one of the most common and widely recognized waterfowl. They are in the family called dabblers and feed by dipping their heads underwater. Often called Greenheads by hunters, they may overwinter in northern states providing there is a source of open water. When flushed, their take-off is abrupt as they arise directly up and out of the water.” – Carl Kurtz
