These are a few of the ducks I spotted at Lake Mira Mar in The Villages, Fl recently. They are Mottled Ducks, and hybrid Mallard Ducks. The Mallards may be a cross between Mottled and Mallard as well as a cross between Mallard and Muscovy. They seem to be sweet happy ducks.
I enjoy seeing the ducks waddling around on the lawns or paddling in the small lakes and even the man-made stream that runs from the plaza to the lake. Occasionally (Winter) some white Pekin Ducks or wild ducks such as Lesser Scaups, Hooded Mergansers, or even Green Teal join in the fun at this pleasant park and lake area.
