Mallard Duck Medicine is known as a “wild duck” and referred to as a dabbling duck. This is a group of ducks that feed mainly on vegetable matter on the water surface. They graze and rarely dive. They are strong fliers and are migratory birds.

The breeding male mallard is unmistakable with a green head, black rear end and a blue speculum edged with white. The males also have a yellow bill with a black tip while the females are dark brown. After all, these males have to be pretty enough to capture the females attention for breeding. Generally in the animal kingdom, the male birds are more colorful than the female for this reason.

Mallard Duck Medicine is very interesting when it comes to breeding. Mallards are very sexual birds and have a high tendency for male to male sexual activity. When you see pictures of two mallards, this is actually two male ducks forming a union. They will only form a pair with a female until she lays eggs and then the male duck will leave her.
