Dangerous Fly-by

Dangerous Fly-by

Southern Vancouver Island

We were at the beach, photographing a young eagle that was right on the water, perched on a piece of driftwood. This 'brave', but highly misguided, pair of mallards flew by right above the eagle. Luckily, he only looked at them and didn't seem to be in the mood for 'duck-a-la-anything' at the time.

Mallard facts: The mallard is the best known and possibly most abundant wild duck in the Northern Hemisphere as it is common in North America, Northern Central America, much of Europe, and Asia. In summer the mallard can be seen throughout Alaska and much of Canada and northern United States. Nesting takes place primarily in the prairie provinces of Canada. ~ Washington Nature Mapping Program
