Tame Ducks are Walking on City Lake Sides

 Fig-1. Three young ducks


We found many ducks, especially young ones play around at the one side of city lake peacefully, no predators and no hunters for sure.


In the wild nature, these ducks live in the quite variety areas, include in the:

- coastal marshes

- bays and bayous

- beaver ponds

- rice fields

- flooding parts of woodland or forest


At least, there are 3 common ducks living in the nature of Louisiana:


1) Mallard

The males are characterized by green heads as you may see two ducks at above photo (Fig-1). Actually, Mallard is migratory ducks, millions from North to South in Mississippi rivers during winters.


Fig-2. Two ducks, male and female


2) Mottled

Bills of Mottled is yellow for male, while olive green for female. The ducks are non migratory, usually stay in coastal marshes all seasons.


Fig-3. Male of Mallard duck.


3) Wood ducks

The habitat of these ducks is in the swamp areas of forests. Since timbers have been harvested almost completely, the ducks may be found in many places include in the Mississippi rivers. 


Fig-4. Lonely duck


Interestingly, ducks watching and hunting are part of important activities in many parts of America. About 11.6 million ducks are harvested per year in the USA.


Some best states to watch and hunt ducks are:

- Louisiana

- Mississippi

- Nebraska

- Minnesota

- North Dakota


Have you watch or hunt duck in nature? Where? Did you taste duck meat?

  2. We love ducks. We have a lot of mallard ducks around here as well as geese. Years ago we had duck and I really didn't like it as it was very greasy.

  3. I don't hunt. I don't think I could do this just for fun. Although I know that it's sometimes needed. I eat duck meat but I didn't like it.

  4. I don't eat duck meat - I tried it once and I didn't like it ...
    but I like to observe and feed them ☺
    best regards

  5. I used to live on the lake and enjoyed seeing the ducks and geese too. I used to feed them until I realized they would then come to expect it! It also didn't take long to realize that they don't discriminate about where they leave their droppings. I ruined a good pair shoes... Nice pics. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Ducks are probably safer at city lakes than most places. In the wild, they're liable to be dragged to their death by turtles, alligators, or blown out of the air by hunters. But you have to admit they're neat animals!

  12. We have had them fly in our yard and eat the seeds the little birds throw on the ground out of the bird feeder, they scare my cat though, he doesn't like all that noise they make!
