Here are some recent photos taken of the local domestic and feral domestic waterfowl at Veteran’s Memorial Park, in The Villages, FL.
All the Mallards there have been “officially” classified as domestic or hybrids, according to the ABA and eBird.
Of course, there usually are the typical white ducks and geese, too.
The local “established feral” Muscovy Ducks have also bred with the Mallards, resulting in some interestingly patterned ducks.
While this parade of semi-domestic ducks swam by, several groups of Black-bellied Whistling Ducks (totaling over 50 birds), newly arrived and taking a rest, watched from a safe distance.
The domestic/feral waterfowl may not be “officially” countable, but I love ducks and geese, so even these guys have a warm place in my heart.
