Waterfowl (Dabbling Ducks)

Dabbling ducks feed mostly at the surface of the water. Dabbling is a feeding method in which the duck dips its head down below the water surface, with its derriere in the air to access its food items. Subjects in this group include Wigeons, Teals, Gadwalls, Mallards, Pintails, Shovelers, Whistling-Ducks, Muscovy Ducks, Mottled Ducks, and Wood Ducks.
