    Does anyone have the iBird app with the mallard duck calls? I was at the lake and played the flirty female and female in flight call. All the males perked right up and listened. Some even came up to me. When I played the male quack-whistle, they got agitated with each other. As soon as I stopped playing the female sounds, all the males started quacking up a storm!

    I have wood duck calls, too, but I didn't see any wood ducks around.

    Anyone else do that with their ducks?

    I'm not sure if you actually have an iPhone or another smartphone. I have an iPad and it worked fine. I think I found it on http://www.whatbird.com and downloaded it on iTunes.

    I think the direct site is: http://www.ibirdexplorer.com/

    They have a lite version which has mallard and wood duck calls. You can buy other apps with more birds on it.

    ETA: I do see where they say it will work on Android, too.

    I won an iPad recently, so I downloaded it, otherwise, I would never have anything like that.

    I was doing some writing work (without pay) for this one website and they had a random drawing for it. There were three cash prizes and two iPad prizes. I could have really used the cash, though. But, I could always sell the iPad.
