Mallard ducks

A pair of my knitted mallards out enjoying the sunshine today. Maybe I should knit some bread for them to eat...

We take mallards very much for granted in England but they are incredibly beautiful birds. Take the time to stop and appreciate them next time you are hurling some white sliced in their general direction! The male's head is a stunning teal green and his black tail has a perky curl. Even the female's brown plumage has a pretty speckle and she has a showy blue and white splash on her wings.
