Mallard Anas platyrhynchos

The Mallard is the most abundant duck on earth.  They can be found throughout most of North America and the Northern Hemisphere.  Their range is extending into the Southern Hemisphere.  In Florida, they are a fairly common to uncommon resident over most of the state.  The further south you go, the more uncommon the Mallard becomes.
