Mallard

Erika and I found a hen Mallard with several chicks at the McLane Creek Natural Trail. 23 April 2021 seems like an early date for hatched birds. However, 14 March is the earliest first egg laying date (Paulson pers. comm.). Incubation averages 28 days. Thus our April record is probably not so noteworthy.
