American Wigeons & Mallards
Two more winter ducks that have been gracing our area are American Wigeons and Mallards.
The American Wigeons will quickly be leaving us and heading back to their breeding grounds in the U.S. mid-West and Canada.

The Chesapeake Bay region hosts Mallards year-round but some do venture a little further south where it’s a little warmer (who can blame them!). We may also receive winter migrants from Canada.

The winter ducks have been fun stuff! 😊
