A common and widespread duck, the mallard is gregarious and congregates in flocks. It is the ancestor of most domestic breeds. The male has a distinctive bottle-green head with chestnut breast and a white collar.
He has a black rear end with a tuft of curled-up feathers. The plumage of the female is mottled shades of brown and buffs, but both sexes have a blue and white speculum. The loud and familiar quack-quack is uttered only by the female, the male is less raucous.
This is an original watercolour painting on Fabriano artistico paper. It is window mounted on ivory, size 40 x 50 cms when mounted.
