At the larger lake, most of the ducks are mallard, but there are a few domestic ducks there like runners, Pekins, a Muscovy and a couple of other breeds. It's made for some interesting combination of colors and sizes. Perhaps someone can help me with identifying the possible breeds: I think the photo below is a very beautiful duck. This next one below has an interesting story. I've known him since day one. I noticed that he would stand more upright and run around more than other mallard ducklings. His mom was being harassed by a drake and he kept getting knocked down by the male while following his mom around almost standing totally upright. When he was 10 days old, I noticed that his head looked different than other ducks, but otherwise seemed like a normal mallard. At 4-5 weeks, he was a little larger and differently shaped, but not too different in size and color than the other ducklings his age. In this photo, he's 12 weeks old and still hasn't flown and has shorter wings. He's slightly larger than other mallards with a more elongated body, too, but doesn't stand upright as much as he used to. I think he might be part Indian runner. In this one, it's a similar thing, though the wings are a little longer. There is also one more duck that looks like this one. They are not from the same brood as the one in the photo above, who was the only surviving duckling. Sorry the next one was blurry, it was the best of two that I took. I love how her head looks! This is one of the few "mules" that I've seen and he's been around a while. He won't let me get a photo of him from the front.
