Friends of a Different Feather

Friends of a Different Feather

It was great to see these two kinds of duck sharing a log together at Delta Ponds. Of course, the Wood Duck is much more colorful than a Mallard, but they are both beautiful. I thought they made a good pair. That's a female Wood Duck on the left.

The wood duck looks a bit annoyed the mallard is sharing its log. Beautiful colors.

Isn't it interesting that the males have more attractive colors than the females?
