@duckmanjim  I will agree with you,

 

That female looks like a Rouen not a mallard.. I was wondering if that is linked with domination, you said that she was trying to push other's around? And sometimes males do that when the breeding season is in full fledge. If you watch horses the males will do that with their neck to corral the females. 

I am a Proud Owner of a male American Black duck and two female Rouen's!!!

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Does she usually run when she puts her head down?  That's actually what ducks do right before take-off -- even the ducks that don't fly.  It's just a duck thing.  The only other time they may place their head down like that is when they also open their bill.  That's a sign of aggression like "hey back off" sort of thing.  Ducks are so silly!
