If the bald eagle is America’s bird, the mallard might be the World’s bird. I look at them and see the similarities to us. They’re social birds who welcome other species into their dabbling. They find homes in cities, on farms, and on the water. And the men are always trying to impress the women. A pair of mallards dabbling in a marsh is a sight that always makes me feel content. There is a familiar comfort to the imagery they create in the landscape, and in how they add a calm sense of movement amongst the grasses, the sky and rippling water.
