One day after coming home from work, I was surprised to see these three Mallard working their way through our neighborhood on foot.
I felt that this behavior was a bit unusual because the nearest standing water to our house is only a small creek several hundred yards/meters away. Further, the nearest population of Mallards that I am aware of is at a small lake well over a mile (1.6km) away from our home.
Since this observation I have witness several other instances of the same type of behavior in other areas of our neighborhood. I am still not sure what motivates these Mallards on their trek through our subdivision.
