It’s not hard to spot this dabbling duck, since it’s one of the world’s most abundant. And it’s not hard to identify, either; the gleaming green head of the male makes it an instant standout. But it may not be so common a sight in the coming decades, as climate models predict a significant northward shift in the Mallard’s summer range.
When you adopt a Mallard, you support Audubon’s urgent work to protect birds in a warming world. You’ll receive:
- A lifelike plush male Mallard that plays a recording of its quack when squeezed
- Adoption certificate and personalized letter from the National Audubon Society
