    A tip: In mallards, green/yellow bill + dark head = male, and dark/yellow bill + light head = female. This may or may not be easier than quack sexing, depending on your ducks.

    I'd say that the one who flies is a female, from the sounds she makes in that video.

    I think I heard a quack and only girls make that loud quack. Boys peep forever and then sound raspy like they screamed so much they lost their voice.
